Lesser Prarie-Chicken is very similar but has pinkish and differently-shaped neck patch and generally paler plumage with more finely barred flanks. The two species almost never overlap in range and habitat. Sharp-tailed Grouse lacks barring on the underparts and has a longer, pointed tail with white outer tail feathers.
