SHARP-TAILED GROUSE
Sharp-tailed grouse are brownish-gray with many
small buff and black markings, a white belly and a
wedge-shaped tail. There are two subspecies of these
grouse in Wyoming. The plains sharp-tailed grouse
can be found in eastern Wyoming with distribution
from the eastern slopes of the Bighorn Mountains and
Laramie Range to South Dakota and Nebraska. Limited numbers of Columbian sharp-tailed grouse can be
found in Grand Teton National Park and in a section of
southern Wyoming.
During mating season in the spring, males put on a
unique courtship dance at a communal mating ground
called a lek. During the courtship, a male lowers his head,
extends his wings and stomps his feet to attract a hen.
