Title Improving Lesser Prairie-Chicken Habitat Through Revegetation and Rangeland Management.
Publication Date Oct 2011
Media Count 8p
Personal Author N/A
Abstract The lesser prairie-chicken, Tympanuchus pallidicinctus, is an upland, grassland-nesting bird native to regions of Kansas, Colorado, Oklahoma, New Mexico, and Texas. It is related to the sharptailed grouse and differs slightly from the greater prairie-chicken in color, size, and behavior, and significantly in range. The lesser prairie-chicken is best known for its unique spring courtship displays and gobbling grounds, also known as leks. Lesser prairie-chicken populations and habitat have declined significantly since the 1800s. Populations are currently found in southeastern Colorado, southwestern Kansas, northwestern Oklahoma, portions of eastern New Mexico, and the Texas panhandle.
