Birds trapped in Nebraska are released to boost Harrison County flocks.



Eagleville, Mo. – With a whirring of wings, the last of 100 greater prairie chickens released this spring at Dunn Ranch Prairie flew over the horizon and settled into native grassland. The bird, a hen, bore a small radio transmitter that will let biologists track it's movements through nesting and brood rearing seasons. Translocating prairie chickens trapped in Nebraska is one component of the Missouri Department of Conservation's (MDC) program to restore this state-endangered species.
