USFWS biologist Angela Sitz performs a raven survey.
The sagebrush ecosystem is the largest interconnected habitat type in the country. Home to more than 350 species of plants and animals and bridging portions of 13 states, America’s sagebrush country sustains iconic plants and wildlife, and a uniquely western way of life.
These pictures were taken outside of Bend, Oregon, near a sage-grouse mating site, or lek.
