National Wildlife Federation Wildlife Postcard Series. Prairie Chicken (Tympanuchus cupido) Here is one of the most interesting western game birds and one who has suffered much form the loss of its natural habitat. In recent years, thanks to intelligent management, it has come back to some degree. Its American range stretches from Colorado and Texas to western Kentucky. The inroads of agriculture have eliminated much of their natural cover, for the Prairie Chicken thrives among prairie grasses and open range. They are distinguished by the odd sacs on the neck which puff out like a balloon during the mating season.
