Greater Sage-Grouse Strut


In early spring, the male greater sage-grouse uses a very unique ritual to prove its fitness for mating to the female population. Besides running other males out of its territory, it nimbly struts around, and tries to attract a mate by showing off the yellow inflatable air sacs that are normally hidden beneath the plumage of its chest.
