Sage Grouse Lek

Recordist: Dwight Porter
Harney County, Oregon, USA


Each spring male Greater Sage Grouse (Centrocercus urophasianus) congregate in leks and perform a “strutting display” to woo the females. The males strut with their ‘chests out’, air-sacs inflated, and produce an unusual swishing & bouncing sound as the air is released.
