Fun to Know:

The Attwater's Prairie Chicken is a rare bird! It is light brown with white stripes. It has yellow over its eyes and orange patches on its neck.

Male prairie chickens court their mate at a "booming ground" where they stamp their feet, expand their neck pouches and make a booming sound. People are working hard to protect its grassy habitat to save this species from extinction.
