Sharp-Tailed Grouse

Male sharp-tailed grouse doing his mating dance. The male birds would all run in circles as the females stood around and watched. The dance was synchronized as all males would dance then all would suddenly stop in place; then all would start again, etc.They were like little wind up toys with tails up, heads down, and wings drooping. Very interesting to see.
