Except this is not what you might think. There was a lot of dancing, hollering, fighting and even sex at this gathering.
This is a rural church near Fort Peck where the Sharp-tailed Grouse have set up a lek. I had suspected this lek was there after observing a few birds displaying here early in February a couple of years ago. Dad confirmed that the lek was there this spring so this morning Crean joined me to go see the dancing.
The light wasn't the best, but we had a good time.
Crean even took a few photos with his camera. Below is one of his photos from this morning.
