Grouse, Sharp-tailed (3-31-2012)

Box Elder County, Utah March 31, 2012
I will post more images as I get them downloaded. Since it was the first time on this lek, I was in my blind an hour and a half before daylight. Rather than be near the center of the lek I positioned myself to one side, wanting to not disturb the birds any more than necessary. As it got light, I could not believe my eyes "there were birds everywhere". There was, conservativly, at least 100-150 birds on the lek. I have never seen so many "sharp-tailes" in one place. They paid my blind "no mind", I had one over anxous bird almost land on me. An absolute perfect morning, Except harriers kept driving them off the lek and it would take a few minutes for them to come back and settle down.
