Grouse in the Grasses

Friends, today we return to color and the wild birds.  This is a grouse from the badlands of North Dakota, taken in late summer or early fall. Not sure if it is a sharp-tail grouse or a sage grouse( or other?).  I am not a very good birder so I don’t know all the differences between the species. But these birds come to the road in the early morning light to get their gravel and pose for pictures :).  I didn’t crop this image closely because i wanted to show the relationship between the grouse and her grassy environment.  What do you think? til Tomorrow MJ
