With a fancy fan of tail feathers, bright yellow eye combs and magnificent plumage, male sage grouses bring enough dazzle to their courtship displays to put a peacock to shame.
Soar above the erupting Old Faithful geyser, the cascading Lower Falls, and the brilliant Grand Prismatic Springs as we explore life in Yellowstone National Park through the eyes of its winged creatures. From an American dipper's frozen dinner to a sage grouse's mating display to a bald eagle's struggle to feed her eaglets, see how the birds of Yellowstone survive and thrive over a course of a year.
