Displaying Greater Prairie Chicken

A greater prairie chicken male displaying at a predawn lek in Central Wisconsin. Prairie chickens belong to the grouse family. They used to be widespread across the country, but loss of habitat has significantly affected their population. The prairie chicken leks in occur in early to mid spring when the weather in Wisconsin is still cold as seen in the frosted grass all around.
