"The birds prance stiff legged around each other, alternately bowing and stretching with their wings half extended. They punctuate the dance by leaping high into the air with their legs dangling loosely beneath them. When excited they pick up small sticks or pieces of grass, toss them exuberantly into the air and then stab them on the way down."

Tsuru is what this was written already here but they sure look like sandhill cranes to me. obviously it is a mating ritual.
