Lesser Prairie-Chicken

Tympanuchus pallidicinctus

 

Prowers County, Colorado, USA.

 

Male. The Lesser Prairie-Chicken is similar in appearance to the Greater, but is smaller and has red air sacs. It's display is also similar, but the sound is very different. I can't describe it very well, but it's easy to hear in this video clip: www.youtube.com/watch?v=kvsDhW9GUAo.
