Female Sage Grouse ~ This female grouse was just outside Bodie State Park. There were at least 30 to 40 birds around, feeding on the grasses and sage brush in the fields beyond the road.
Sage Grouse ~ This male Sage Grouse was photographed at Bodie State Park, where they spend some time during the summer season. Most of the grouse there were females and young; I was glad to see this large male, so close-up.
