“Every spring, male Sharp-tailed Grouse ‘dance’ as a display for potential mates,” Medicine Lake National Wildlife Refuge manager Brooke Johns told the Community News. According to Johns, the Refuge has recently purchased a new blind so visitors can come watch the dancing ceremonies, which typically take place on sites known as “leks.” The dancing begins at sunrise and visitors have to be in the blind at least 45 minutes before sunrise and stay through the duration (usually around 9- 10 a.m.) so as not to disturb the birds. The blind can be reserved by calling the Refuge at 406-789-2305.
