Booming Prairie Chicken
Rothsay, MN
The Booming Prairie Chicken was built in 1976. It is made of concrete over a metal frame by Art Fosse. The statue is 13 feet tall by 18 feet long. Rothsay claims to be the Prairie Chicken Capital of Minnesota. There are large numbers of them roaming the prairies in the area. In early spring, the male prairie chicken performs a mating ritual called "booming" during which he spreads his wings and tail feathers, inflates the orange sacs on either side of his neck, and makes a booming sound.
