Courtship dance of the Asian Houbara Bustard

The Asian Houbara Bustard (Chlamydotis undulata) is a medium-sized bird native to north Africa.

The male Asian Houbara Bustard dances to attract a mate.

He raises his white head feathers and neck feathers, while tucking in his head. 

He does not make a noise; he dances silently, running slowly in front of a female.
