We have prairie chickens in Nebraska. I've seen several photos of them, but this is the best I've seen. Congratulations, Ravi! #11739291

Thanks Rosemary and Joan for your comments. They are hard to catch in action as their jumps are unpredictable and they are in constant movement. I got lucky this time. #11739315

During breeding season, males do booming with beautiful displays. they often fight with each other for territory they have staked out in the lek.
