Ruffed Grouse jumping into the air

Ruffed Grouse courtship dance

This was a very unique and a once in a lifetime viewing. I have never seen this ever and neither has my dad who has lived here in the woods in Twig for over 20 years. They do this dance after the male drums and a female finds him. This occurs before they mate but leads up to it. Enjoy the pictures!
