This is a male [[url=prairie chicken]prairie chickn[/url], jumping, as Art noted, pretty much straight up in the air during the mating ritual which is called "booming".

What a great morning we had listening to and observing these very interesting birds.

And how great it is to see this score this highly in a Free Study - I'm thrilled. Thank you for the votes and lovely comments.
