Greater Prairie-Chickens on Konza Prairie

April 15, 2007

The Konza Prairie Biological Station maintains a blind near a decent-sized lek where male Greater Prairie-Chickens (Tympanuchus cupido) congregate in the spring to display and compete in hopes of mating with one of the local females. On Sunday April 15, 2007, a cold and bright morning on the prairie, I got some pictures of some of this action. All pictures 2007 D.A. Rintoul
