Gunnison Sage-Grouse

Detailed Description

The Gunnison Sage-Grouse Centrocercus minimus was first recognized in 2000 as a species distinct from the closely related Greater Sage-Grouse C. urophasianus. It has now been listed as Endangered due to its small population size, a fact not apparent when it was treated as the same species as the Greater Sage-Grouse.
