Greater Sage-Grouse stand up to two feet tall and weigh between two and seven pounds. Females (hens) are smaller and mottled brown, black and white. Males are more colorful and have spiked tails and large white ruffs around their necks. The male’s most distinctive feature may be bright yellow air sacs on the chest, which they inflate during courtship displays. The hens’ less-showy coloring helps hide them from predators, especially when they have young to protect.
These updates are designed to provide information on the status of the preparation of the final EIS, provide education and highlight work currently being done to conserve Sage-grouse habitat. Updates will be provided as necessary.
