Who Wants To See a Greater Prairie Chicken?
SEPTEMBER 18, 2015
Have you ever seen a Greater Prairie Chicken? Destroy the native prairies and lose Henslow’s Sparrows , Bobolinks , Upland Sandpipers , and Greater Prairie Chickens. In Abraham Lincoln’s day, Prairie Chickens were an incredibly abundant part of the Illinois prairie landscape. Couple that with the fact that Greater Prairie Chickens are either holding on or in decline in all states except Nebraska and the national picture becomes clear. Dawn on the prairie.
