FILE --This April 15, 2008 file photo shows a male sage grouse performing  his "strut" near Rawlins, Wyo. The federal government paid $236 million to landowners in 11 states to preserve sage grouse habitat amid a debate over whether the bird should be listed as an endangered species, potentially hindering energy development and ranching. The Casper Star-Tribune reported Wednesday, April 30, 2014, that the money was paid for conservation efforts on nearly 6,000 square miles, mostly in the West, over a four-year period.
