    Gunnison Sage-Grouse Identification

    The Four Keys to ID

    • Size & Shape

      The Gunnison Sage-Grouse is a large grouse with a chubby, round body, small head, and long tail. Males change shape dramatically when they display, becoming almost spherical as they puff up their chest, droop their wings, and fan their tail into a starburst.
