Carol Schlegel says, “They’re whimsical, charming and fascinating—the elusive Greater Prairie Chickens strut their stuff in a spectacular show every Spring in the countryside around McCook. Early morning birders head out on weekends in late March and April to observe the mating dance. Schlegel’s Chicken Dance Tours includes an orientation the evening before viewing. Transportation, the viewing experience and breakfast are included in the tour fee.
