    Sharp-tailed grouse are best known for their “leks,” or traditional breeding sites, whereas many 15 males will congregate on the wide open prairie to compete for female attention by strutting, cackling, and stomping their feet in a strangely synchronized dance.. The spring breeding season isn’t the only time when sharp-tailed grouse will gather into large flocks. Buy The sharp-tailed grouse in Colorado, by Glenn E Rogers (ISBN:) from Amazon's Book Store.

    The Sharp-tailed Grouse is primarily found in more northerly locations than its close cousin, the prairie-chickens. One of the subspecies, the Columbian sharp-tailed grouse, can be found in isolated pockets of Idaho, Wyoming, Colorado, Utah, and British Columbia. Sharp-tailed grouse populations sit at about 10 percent of historic numbers across their entire range, which runs from British Columbia through the Rocky Mountains to northern Colorado.

      In early spring, just after the snow melts, male sharp-tailed grouse take to the dance floor in effort to secure breeding rights. Their early morning dance consists of rapidly stomping their feet.
