Lesser Prairie-Chicken (78260 bytes)

 

 

 

Naturalist/photographer Dick Wilberforce and I photographed Lesser Prairie-Chickens from a blind that he had set up at their lek in the Texas panhandle.  A fee was charged to use the blind, but I didn't mind paying it.   The money helps preserve the habitat of the prairie-chickens, most of which is privately owned ranches.
