Greater Prairie Chicken - Tympanuchus cupido Ethan Duke 2013-03-28 Taber (near Rockville), St. Clair County, Missouri, Saint Clair (United States) (240 m) booming, cackle, song, whine -

Recorded with Autonomous Recording Unit. Wildlife Acoustics SM2.

Plus or minus 50 there are only about 100 Greater Prairie-chickens remaining in Missouri. This is largely due to the fact that Missouri has less than 1/2 of 1% of the original tall-grass prairie remaining.

Risk of disturbing birds and difficulty in recording from a blind, left me to using and ARU. These worked great on the leks.
