"It begins in the dark, pre-dawn silence of an early Flint Hills spring.  A small gathering of Prairie Chicken males begin their dance.  Their booming resonates so loudly you might think these colorful birds are abundant.  Yet, what you see are among the precious few that have survived.  This is a "come back story" . . . these remarkable birds "come back" to The Flint Hills of Kansas where the age-old sounds of territorial aggression, conflict and competition are heard each spring." 

And here you are in a South Fork Adventures blind witnessing the whole thing!
