Spectacular Dancing Grouse Photography Tour 2024

Flying J Travel Center Saskatoon parking lot 3850 Idylwyld Dr N, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada

“Just have to say I had one of the most phenomenal Sask-natural experiences this morning watching over 20 male & 6 female Sharp-tailed grouse dance on their dancing ground. We joined the birds at 5 am and stayed until the last ones left about 8:30 am.
I’m a fan that the Sharp-tailed Grouse is our provincial bird and I understand that they and their dance has a special place in some First Nations cultures.
I want to thank Stan Shadick for this great tour through Saskatoon Custom Bird Tours and of course the fee went to help Living Sky Wildlife Rehabilitation – a super organization! I was very happy to help out with a contribution.” D.F. April 20, 2021.

You and the other members of your party may sit inside your vehicle for the entire 3 – 5 hour session. You will photograph and observe the grouse through the open windows on the left side of your vehicle. The windows on the right side of your vehicle should be covered with dark towels so that the grouse do not see your silhouette moving inside the vehicle. Using towels, your vehicle becomes an effective blind. You should keep conversations very quiet.
