Female Dusky GrouseFemale Greater Sage-Grouse – Nikon D200, f6.3, 1/1250, ISO 400, Nikkor 200-400mm VR with 1.4x TC at 242mm, natural light, not baited

I photographed this female Greater Sage-Grouse  while up in the Wasatch Mountains of Utah. This hen was traveling in a small flock of four to five birds as I recall and they were feeding right at the edge of a two lane road.  They didn’t appear to be the least bit timid and I was able to take a series of images of them before moving down the curvy mountain road. I hope to photograph them again sometime in the future.
