Unidentified Flying Bird


Any guesses on this one? (I do know what it is). Click on the picture to enlarge it.
Added on 4-13 - I should have told you where this was taken. I don't like the random photo bird guess without knowing where it was taken since that really limits your ID tools. This picture was taken in Montana in April.

At first it looked like a Flicker to me... but the bill looks odd... so I'll guess Eider.

I think it is a Sage Grouse.

This is indeed a Greater Sage-grouse. If the Catherine that guessed right is who I think it is then it is a good thing she got it right - she was sitting right beside me when I took the picture!

Shoot, you closed it too early_- but both Libby and I said sage grouse too. We have seen them flying around leks in Idaho.
