I am studying a declining population of greater sage-grouse in Central Oregon at the western edge of greater sage-grouse range, investigating possible causes for the decline. These investigations include collecting data on human disturbances, avian predator densities, conifer encroachment, and water availability and comparing these data to greater sage-grouse demographics and habitat-use. The results of this initial 3-year study will be given to local managers to help inform their decisions.
