Habitat Evaluation Guide for the Lesser Prairie-Chicken

This circular discusses the Lesser Prairie-chicken, and ways to develop and protect the habitat. Oklahoma is home to two species of prairie-chickens: the greater prairie-chicken (Tympanuchus cupido) and the lesser prairiechicken (Tympanuchus pallidicinctus). Prairie chickens are the only two species of grouse found in Oklahoma. The greater prairie-chicken is found in the tallgrass areas of northeastern Oklahoma, while the more uncommon lesser prairie-chicken is found in the northwestern portion of the state including the panhandle. Lesser prairie-chickens (LPC) occur in shortgrass and mixed grass prairies, sand shinnery grasslands and sand sagebrush grasslands.
