Sage Grouse Lek

Harney County, Oregon,

United States

Recordist: Dwight Porter
Location: Harney County, Oregon, United States
Habitat: Grassland with Sagebrush
Notes: 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.
