Thanks! I'm glad you enjoyed the photos.
These are actually the males displaying in a mating effort. The puffed up areas are filled with air, not eggs.

Sarah, these are terrific photos! I actually saw a sage grouse do the 'fluffing' once. I heard the sound first and then watched it. BUT, to see the female with the eggs...I had no idea they held them like this! Amazing!
