03-10 | Aerial Surveys to Document Lesser Prairie-Chicken Population Trends

Aerial surveys for lesser prairie-chickens will begin March 17 and run through mid-May in Texas and four other states containing habitat the bird needs to thrive. The surveys are conducted annually by the Western Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies (WAFWA) to ascertain population trends and how the bird is responding to management strategies identified in the Lesser Prairie-Chicken Range-wide Conservation Plan.
