          • Greater Sage Grouse


            from Raven On The Mountain Video Added 74 1 1

            The iconic Sage Grouse is one of the symbols of the High Plains. Most people go to Wyoming to see them, but they are also in Utah, and other places. These birds were filmed at a public lek not an hour away from Salt Lake City. It is accessible by automobile, no 4 wheel drive required. Like at all grouse leks. you need to get there before dawn, be quiet, and don't walk around. Because these birds were filmed from 50-80 meters away, the sounds are not as rich as from a closer recording. Mostly the low-pitched plopping and gulping comes through, with the whistles and rubs hard to hear. But the choosy female still rules, as these males try to attract her, even into June. They started this in March. There were about 20 birds on this lek.

                The Greater Sage-Grouse is North America’s largest species of grouse and is well known for its bizarre breeding displays. The sage-grouse is also a species that has evoked controversy in the Great Basin region over how to best manage the population, which has been in steady decline over the past several decades. This short documentary tells the story of the Greater Sage-Grouse from the perspective of the USGS biologists who are studying this bird in the heart of its range in Northern Nevada.

                    from HagarFILMS Added

                    The federal government has joined with wildlife conservationists, ranchers, energy producers and governors of all 11 western states to protect and restore the sage grouse population. In 2015, a court ordered National Fish and Wildlife determination could put a stop to this $350 million dollar effort and could seriously curtail recreation, agriculture and renewable energy development across the west. HagarFILMS produced a campaign of 3 x :30 second ads on this topic for the Western Energy Alliance, a follow up to our common ground campaign of 2013.
