One of a set of three very short clips of sharp-tailed grouse. These videos were shot in late May on the Delta Junction Agricultural Project. They reveal the unique and varied calls and behavior of male sharp-tailed grouse during the breeding season. Males dance and display on a communal lek to attract a female early in the morning. While on the lek they exhibit a variety of calls, tail rattling, foot stomping, and wing posturing. Rick Merizon video. For more on grouse and grouse hunting, see:
