Come along and join Carol Schlegel in the farming and ranching community of McCook, in the heart of Southwest Nebraska, where she leads Prairie Chicken Dance Tours. Nebraska’s Greater Prairie Chicken population is estimated to range from 800,000 to 2.5 million birds, but they’re one of Nebraska’s most rarely spotted bird species as they are adept at hiding out in the prairie’s tall buffalo grass. We’ll also visit with McCook rancher, Angus Garey. His family first settled in Nebraska back in the 1880s, and he’s been passionately involved in the birding tours, and preserving habitat since its inception.
