Dance of Prairie-Chickens – Wray, Colorado

The Sandhills of eastern Colorado remain a stronghold for greater prairie-chickens in the state.  Earlier this month, we traveled to Wray in search of prairie-chickens performing their annual spring dance on the plains.  Cloudy skies and a light rain made it difficult for photography, but we managed to get some video footage showing the boys whooping, cackling, stutter-stepping and sparring.  As always, they put on quite the show.
