The primary goal of this trip is to see greater sage grouse on a lek. On Sunday got up  very early to meet Aaron Ambos of Southern Nevada Water Authority at 4:30 am. Aaron lead eight of us to a monitored lek in Spring Valley. We were treated to a wonderful show of 44 strutting males. Afterwards, we saw many golden eagles, ferruginous hawks and sand hill cranes before returning to Las Vegas.
