Join me for a 4 hour tour to view sharp-tailed grouse while they dance near sunrise. To impress the females, male grouse run frantically across the prairie like spinning robots while stomping furiously on the ground, raising their tail, lifting their wings and emitting weird sounds. Brief duels often break out between competing males. I should be able to get you close to the action to take photos or video of this exciting ritual. This self-driving tour is offered near sunrise in April and May.
