The greater sage-grouse makes its living in sagebrush habitats across the western U.S. and Canada. Every year from late February to May, male sage-grouse perform a striking dance routine each morning at dawn. Jason Robinson, upland game coordinator for the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources, breaks down the dance and describes challenges the birds face in Utah.
