More on Lesser Prairie-Chickens

This map shows the original range for Lesser Prairie-Chickens and the small amount that is currently occupied by them due to the many impediments that man has put on them (ie, conversion to farmland, overgrazing, addition of anthropomorphic structures like drilling rigs and power poles)

Lesser Prairie-Chicken have very specific habitat needs that vary over time (breeding, nesting, brood rearing, winter). This is a good summary of their habitat needs.
