This is simply a post for record. I was able to see 4 booming males on the Texas coastal prairie this morning but they never came close so these record shots are heavily cropped. Less than 300 of these birds left in the world. The population of this refuge was decimated by flooding last spring and they are down to about 40 birds on the refuge itself. There are captive breeding programs that contribute to the wild but mortality for these birds is high. Thanks for reading this.
A couple of record shots. A pair and single.
