The Unique Mating Dance Of The Sage Grouse

The male sage grouse (Centrocercus urophasianus) has a unique way of attracting ladies. This bird, native to North America, inflates and pulses its gular sacs as a mating ritual. The dances take place in what is called a lek, essentially a dance floor for the males to showcase their moves.
