Kansas Greater Prairie Chicken

Kansas Greater Prairie Chicken: The Kansas Greater Prairie Chicken is a common name for one of species of the grouse family that also fall in the family Tetraonidae. The Prairie chicken resemble small domestic fowl in appearance, but have thick, strong legs which make it possible for this game bird to jump quickly into a very short flight when surprised. This happens much in the Kansas’s hunting season as many guides and outfitters are out on hunts for game birds of this type. The plumage of the greater prairie chicken in Kansas can vary, but is normally thick and soft. In most species like the prairie chicken, the color of the plumage is somber, generally brown, speckled and barred with black. This color scheme helps the greater prairie chicken escape hunters that are on trips or guided hunts for this game bird. A few species of the grouse have a more brilliant plumage of dark greens and purples. All species have short, thick bills with the upper portion of the bill rounded. The nest of the prairie chicken found in Kansas, are built in slight hollows in the round, consists of sticks, leaves, grasses, and a few feathers of the parent birds. The young are covered with a fine, heavy down. The diet is varied, and includes snails, worms, insects, berries, seeds, and buds, most species frequent woods, but a few species, such as greater prairie chickens found in Kansas which generally inhabit northern regions, are found in open fields. These areas are very popular for a hunting outfitter or guide. All grouse except ptarmigans are from the family polygamous. The males of Polygamous species fight for possession of the harem, and the males of some species gather at certain fixed “fighting fields” in the spring.

Of the over forty species of grouse, which include the Greater Prairie Chicken found in North America, the most important are the blue or dusky grouse, Dendragapus obscurus , an inhabitant of western U.S., noted as an easy bird to hunt because it has no fear of man, and the sage grouse Centrocercus urophasianus, the largest grouse in North America, native to western U.S. The ruffled grouse, Bonasa umbellus, sometimes called “pheasant”, this game bird is well known in Kansas by hunting guides and outfitter for the “drumming” sound produced by the males in spring. The noise is a part of the bird’s mating behavior, like the gestures of some other birds in the mating season. The mechanism which the bird uses to produce this noise has long been a subject of controversy. Recent high-speed photographs have proved that the noise comes from a quick beating of the wings in the air in rising tempo. The cock often stands on a log during the drumming.
