The males compete for the females by dancing, fighting and making various sounds. It is more like a fighting frenzy. The females watch from the outskirts and select a mate from the group. I am not sure what the females are looking for but the males put on quite a show. They puff up their colorful necks and eye brows, spread their wings and start to coo, cluck and stomp their feet making a rattling sound. I have no idea what makes the rattling sound but the whole process is something to experience. Another amazing part of this show is that the dancing is synchronized. I would compare it to some kind of magnetic board game. It is like someone turns on a switch and they all start to dance at once. The switch gets turned off and they all stop and hold their positions until it starts all over again.
