Greater Prairie ChickenFighting Males

Swather Ranch, Nebraska Sandhills

Greater Prairie Chickens, like other grouse species, fight for the right to mate during lekking, or mating season. In an open area on the western Nebraska Sandhills prairie, Greater Prairie Chickens continue their timeless mating ritual of spring. Males make a strange and long, low hoot sound like blowing across the top of a bottle as part of their display. Greater Prairie Chickens small pockets in the Great Plains and are declining due to habitat loss, mostly to agricultural conversion. Calamus Outfitters at the Switzer Ranch offers prairie chicken and sharptail grouse tours and hosts a prairie chicken festival in the spring.

My archival prints are printed on professional paper that holds color and detail and looks great mounted.  All prints are signed.

DuraPlaq Mounted

The Duraplaq Standard substrate is a 3/8" HDF board that is 100% recycled, environmentally friendly and is pre-laminated on both sides and finished with a "box" frame. The finished picture has a clean look and the matte laminate greatly reduces glare, allowing you to see the image. Duraplaq mounted prints can be cleaned with your normal glass cleaning products and are extremely durable.
