Blake Grisham, a Texas Tech doctoral student, holds one half of the telemetry system, a pole shaped like a weather vane.The beeps get louder and more frequent as Grisham and Frey climb to the crest of a hill.They have to be or they'll die," said Grisham of the birds, which typically weigh less than a pound.The young men comb through the shinnery oak, but find no nest.They may have interrupted the female too soon or she may have been injured rather than nesting, they guess.But she's tagged.The nine-gram radio transmitter looped around her neck will lead them to her again.This game of trial and error is worthwhile, the pair said, because it's for lesser prairie chickens - dodgy, little birds found in ever-shrinking patches on the Great Plains.They are famous for their mating antics: Each spring, male chickens flock to breeding grounds, called leks, and dance to attract females.They inflate red, balloon-like sacs on their necks, raise their feathers and stamp their feet."(It's) a bar scene.It's a bunch of goofy males dancin' and tryin' to get the attention of the females and the females usually aren't interested," Grisham said.Despite the attention the antics have drawn, the number of the birds in the state has dipped to an all-time low, according to researchers.Grisham, Frey and two other Tech students have moved to Yoakum County to collect as much information as they can about the brooding habits of the chickens.The radio transmitters on hens led Grisham and company to this summer's hatchlings.Once the tiny birds hatched, the team glued 2-gram radio chips on their backs to track them daily.And find out why so many die.If the babies live long enough, the chips will be replaced with nine-gram collars.But most of Yoakum's first tagged hatchlings did not fair well, weakened by a string of thunderstorms and preyed upon by other animals, Grisham said."(This) is a really critical time for these little guys.They are just so small and they are prey for everything - hogs, coyotes, snakes," he said.Blake Grisham holds a lesser prairie chicken hen.The hen has a radio collar around her neck used for tracking the bird.Provided By Blake Grisham
