Greater sage-grouse strut displayGreater sage-grouse strut display

Evolution works in mysterious ways. The greater sage-grouse are the largest grouse in North America. In the spring the males gather on breeding grounds called 'leks' to perform their courtship routines. They have a winner-takes-all system where only a few of the most attractive males mate with all the females. More info: www.eve.ucdavis.edu/gpatricelli/

Animal behaviour is always interesting to watch. I suppose we as humans have our our leks i.e. night clubs, pubs etc where the males try and out perform each other to attract as many females as possible. Fortunately, the end result is not always offspring; it's rather more of a training ground for social interaction. By the way, a lek is a geographical area where males of polygynous species gather and display their own peculiar mating behaviour to attract females (of the same species) to mate with them. I could tell you much more about leks, but I don't want to bore the feathers off you.
