2016—Say What?

The sounds that male Greater Prairie Chickens make during their mating displays on the leks include low hooting moans and high pitched clucking noises.  The sounds begin before daybreak and intesify as activity increases on the lek as the sun risees.  This male Greater Prairie Chicken appears to be saying something as the sun shows above the horizon, lighting the drops of dew on the blades of grass surrounding him.
