Prairie Chicken Poster by orinocou Prairie Chicken Poster by orinocou
A present to Prairie State Natural Area in Newton, Illinois. Prairie Chickens used to be plentiful all over the US Great Plains area, but have been over-hunted inhabit a very restricted range. These little guys are famous for their haunting boom-singing and their MC Hammer-like dancing. [link]

Newton is the only place in Illinois where the Greater Prairie Chicken can be found.

Poster done in Photoshop and in the style of those National Park promotional ads. The PSNA is a tiny little place, nothing near as big as a state or national park, but their efforts in conserving these birds means they deserve a poster of their own.

[EDIT] The International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) keeps a Red List of threatened species. The Greater Prairie Chicken is classified as "Vulnerable", which is one step down from "Endangered". [link]
