Good fences may make good neighbors....

...but ordinary fences are killers--at least for us prairie grouse. But thanks to the hard work of some wonderful people in Oklahoma, the fences in one area won't be hurting our little relatives, Lesser Prairie-Chickens, anymore. Wires look like grasses to us prairie birds, and you can walk or fly right through grasses without getting injured. Check out Eric Beck's blog to learn what they did to make fences look like the kinds of things we'd want to avoid rather than fly right through.
