Default The diversity of life...awesome!

If you have not seen a greater sage grouse dance this year watch this video. The birds are amazing,the land is stunning. Wouldn't it sadden you to know this was gone forever?

If you're interested check out some of this work.

She uses a female sage grouse robot to get video up close of lek behavior and sound quality.

That video is amazing. I will be sharing it with family and friends. What awesome birds. I have seen them while poking around out west, but not perform at their lek before. I have been lucky enough to be very close to a ruffed grouse while they do their drumming. Talk about an awesome experience. You can feel it in your chest!

Gloria you've been adding some real nice threads since my absence. I haven't commented much along the lines any where here today as I'm pretty much trying to wiz through some almost 300 new post but I wanted to let you know I've enjoyed viewing them. Thank you for your additions!

It is hard to catch up when you're away for a while. I have been doing some marathon reading as well.

I'm doing a slow and steady catch up...no marathon for me.

If I missed anything that someone wants me to see (or if a response from me is required), perhaps someone could do me the favor of posting and bumping it up where I can see it easily. If not, I'll get to it when I see it.

That is exactly what I was just thinking! Please be so kind to do that for me as well.

I've not seen anything bumped up for me... Hopefully you'll have better luck. ~smile~
