Sharp-tailed Grouse: Resident from inland Alaska east to the southern coast of the Hudson Bay and south to northern Utah, northeastern New Mexico, and Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Found in brushlands, grasslands, sagebrush, woodland edges, brushy prairies, cleared farmlands, bogs, river canyons, and boreal forest edges.

    Sharp-tailed Grouse are generally recorded in small numbers along BBS routes on the northern Great Plains from the Dakotas and Montana into southern Canada (Relative Abundance Map). The very locally distributed populations in eastern and western North America are generally missed by this survey, and no information is provided on populations in. habitat, both of which are critical for sharp-tailed grouse (Giesen and Connelly ; Connelly et al. ). The objective of this paper is to describe historic changes in distribution and abundance of Columbian sharp-tailed grouse that resulted in their listing and relate these declines to changes in habitat quantity and quality.

      Finding sharp-tailed grouse to hunt can change from season to season based on cover, water and food. As we stare down the barrel of the upland bird season, thoughts of long days in the field following our favorite hunting partner come to now my time is spent working dogs on wild birds and getting them acclimated to the ground and temperature as well as in the physical condition.

Sharp-tailed grouse (Tympanuchus phasianellus) populations may be declining in Alberta. In order to better understand long-term population trends across a broad geographic extent, it is important to develop habitat-based inventory tools that are statistically defendable and robust (Boyce et al.

The most noted reasons for their decline are likely. Most of our knowledge of the Sharp-tailed Grouse comes from populations in the United States and southern Canada. Little is known about this species in more northern portions of its range. Because of extensive habitat changes, most southern populations now occupy smaller portions of their historical range, and many populations may still be.

Description. Out of the seven subspecies of sharp-tailed grouse, the Columbian is the smallest at 15–20 inches (38–51 cm) in length. They have plumage with a base of grayish-brown, white and black markings, and a white wedge-shaped have a longer tail, a purple throat patch and a yellow comb over the eye.

Distribution and habitat. Its historical range extended from British. Sharp-tailed grouse are a precocial species, meaning that they hatch with their eyes open, are self-reliant, and do not require the mother to feed them.

Shortly after hatching, the chicks and mother leave the nest site in search of cover and food. Here's a few short, low-resolution, clips of sharp-tailed grouse dancing on a lek near Baudette, Minnesota.

Indigenous to Minnesota, this bird was once the most abundant in the state. However, its open territories have been vulnerable to demolition and development. As a result, the Sharp-tail range has become more restricted, centering on the northern mixed forests and boreal peatland in the.
