This prairie chicken hen was outfitted with a radio transmitter by MDC staff and released at Dunn Ranch in northwest Missouri in late April. These transmitters must be tracked by staff with antennae and have a limited range. They are different than the larger transmitter connected with a satellite that Iowa biologists placed on Bird No. 112. The purpose of both types of transmitters is the same. Biologists track the birds to determine what habitat management will best help prairie chickens recover in areas where public-private partnerships are protecting remnant prairies or restoring native grasses and wildflowers.
