Each year, our Colorado Grouse Field Guides tours visit the display grounds of some of North America's fanciest birds. Now, with a multi-part series from OutBirding, we'll bring the early spring "lek" action to your homes—and you don't even have to wake up at 4 AM to join the party! In this first installment of The Dancing Chickens, we visit a Greater Sage-Grouse lek on a snowy April morning to watch these huge, dramatic grouse strut their stuff against a beautiful Colorado landscape.
