Greater Sage Grouse
Male: 28 inches. Female 22 inches. Heavy, with long, spiky, pointed tails.
Western United States.
Formerly considered conspecific with the Gunnison Sage Grouse.
Found almost exclusively in dry sagebrush plains, usually in small groups.
In spring, groups of males form leks, where many display at the same spot, so that the females can choose between them.
