Greater Prairie Chicken

 

http://www.arkive.org/greater-prairie-chicken/tympanuchus-cupido/image-G52397.html

 

The greater prairie chicken is a stocky brown, strongly barred grouse with paler coloured stripes, most easily recognised by the male’s distinctive and impressive appearance during courtship display. During the male’s display, prominent, elongated pinnae (adapted neck feathers) become erected over the head, and large yellow-orange air sacs in the neck and above the eye become inflated. Both sexes possess these prominent neck feathers but they are longer in males. The sexes can also be distinguished by the short, square tail being dark brown in males, but barred brown and tan in females. Other features of this species include an obvious dark eye-stripe, pale throat, and legs that are feathered down to the toes. During the mating season, males make a loud “booming” noise that can be heard half a mile away, amplified by their inflated air sacs.

Greater Prairie Chicken

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greater_Prairie_Chicken

 

 

The Greater Prairie Chicken or Pinnated Grouse, Tympanuchus cupido, is a large bird in the grouse family. This North American species was once abundant, but has become extremely rare or extinct over much of its range due to habitat loss. There are current efforts to help this species gain the numbers that it once had. One of the most famous aspects of these creatures is the mating ritual called booming.

 

There are three subspecies;

  • The Heath Hen, Tympanuchus cupido cupido, which was historically found along the Atlantic coast is extinct. It was possibly a distinct species; in this case the two other forms would be T. pinnatus pinnatus and T. p. attwateri.
  • Attwater's Prairie Chicken, T. c. attwateri is endangered and restricted to coastal Texas.
  • The Greater Prairie Chicken, T. c. pinnatus, is now restricted to a small section of its former range.

POPULATION AND HABITAT

Greater Prairie Chickens prefer undisturbed prairie and were originally found in tall grass prairies. They can tolerate agricultural land mixed with prairie, but the more agricultural land the fewer prairie-chickens. Their diet consists primarily of seeds and fruit but during the summer they also eat insects and green plants. These birds were once widespread all across the oak savanna and tall grass prairie ecosystem. The Greater Prairie Chicken was almost extinct in the 1930s due to hunting pressure and habitat loss. They now only live on small parcels of managed prairie land. It is thought that their current population is about 459,000 individuals. In May 2000, the Canadian Species at Risk Act listed the Greater Prairie Chicken as extirpated in its Canadian range (Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario). It was again confirmed by the Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada in November 2009.

In states such as Missouri that once had thriving prairie chicken populations (estimated to be "hundreds of thousands"), total numbers have dropped to about 500. However, the Missouri Department of Conservation has started a program to import prairie chickens rustled up in Kansas in the hopes that they will be able to repopulate the state and increase that number to 3,000.

 

THREATS

Greater Prairie Chickens are not threatened by severe winter weather. When the snow is thick they "dive" in to the snow to keep warm. A greater threat to the prairie chickens comes in the form of spring rains. These sometimes drenching rains can wreak havoc on their chicks. Another major natural threat is drought. A drought can destroy food and make it difficult for the chicks.

Human interactions are by far the greatest threat. The conversion of native prairie to cropland is very detrimental to these birds. It was found in a radio telemetry study conducted by Kansas State University that "most prairie chicken hens avoided nesting or rearing their broods within a quarter-mile of power lines and within a third-mile of improved roads." (Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks) It was also found that the prairie-chickens avoided communication towers and rural farms.

CONGRATS KIM Noted all the info Nyack and Thanx ) ) )

There IS a Lesser Prairie Chicken, Val- it lives in differerent geographies, is a little smaller, and as a "vunerable" species, but not an "endangered" species.

Lesser Prairie Chicken

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lesser_Prairie_Chicken

The Lesser Prairie Chicken, Tympanuchus pallidicinctus, a species in the grouse family, is slightly smaller and paler than its near relative the Greater Prairie Chicken. It is found primarily in the sandhills and prairies of Western Oklahoma, the Texas Panhandle, and the Llano Estacado of Texas and Eastern New Mexico, and also rarely in Southeastern Colorado, and Western Kansas.

Like its larger relative, it is known for its lekking behavior.

Considered "vulnerable" by the IUCN due to its restricted and patchy range, it is vulnerable to habitat destruction. There is evidence suggesting that global warming may have a particularly detrimental influence by greatly reducing the size of the sagebrush ecosystem. Subfossil remains are known, e.g., from Rocky Arroyo in the Guadalupe Mountains, outside the species' current range but where more habitat existed in the less humid conditions in the outgoing last ice age. They disappeared apparently no later than about 8000 BC, soon after the start of human settlement, which may also have contributed to the local extinction.

The United States Department of the Interior has proposed creating a Lesser Prairie Chicken Preserve as a National Monument, but it remains controversial, and President Barack Obama has not taken action on the proposal under the Antiquities Act of 1906 as of February 2012.
