Soon bird lovers throughout the United States, around the world, young and old will be venturing to the small town of Wray in northeastern Colorado. The last week of March and the month of April bring about signs of spring, and the area comes to life with the weekend arrivals of those viewing the Greater Prairie Chickens and their natural habitat.

The rolling sandhills north of Wray provide an excellent territory for the birds. The Wray Chamber of Commerce, the East Yuma County Historical Society and the Colorado Division of Wildlife in cooperation with the landowner sponsor Greater Prairie Chicken tours every spring. This has been an annual event for over 20 years.

The dates for the 2014 tours have been scheduled. Tours will begin the weekend of Friday, March 28 and will continue through Saturday, April 19.
