A native to Alberta and Saskatchewan, this bird used to number in the thousands throughout the prairies but now can only be found in small pockets through the providence. 

With numbers dropping below 100, ecologists are sounding the alarm that this may be the last year for this species. Their range used to reach up to Kindersley and area but over the years they have been pushed further and further south. 

Like something out of a science fiction movie, the males inflate large air sacks on their chest and create a burbling noise unique to them and only them.

The location of the few remaining breeding grounds and nesting locations have become a closely guarded secret to protect what remains of the population.
