1 / 2

BRAINERD, Minn.—In this week's Northland Outdoors TV episode, we examine the plight of the prairie chicken, which is making a comeback on the flatlands of western Minnesota at The Nature Conservancy's Bluestem Prairie Scientific and Natural Area located just 20 miles east of Moorhead, Minn.

And then travel with the crew to the Hawk Ridge Nature Reserve and Hawk Ridge Bird Observatory just north of the city of Duluth, Minn., which for several reasons becomes a bird migration superhighway each fall, creating a bird migration unlike you've ever seen.

See it all in this weekend's episode of "Northland Outdoors TV."

Northland Outdoors TV debuted on Fox Sports North and many other local ABC affiliates across North Dakota in July. The show is hosted by veteran outdoors radio host Brett Amundson.

The 30-minute show airs weekly at 7 a.m. on Fox Sports North, which airs in North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota, Wisconsin and upper Iowa. Addition, the show will air at 10 a.m. Central (9 a.m. Mountain) on Channel 6 WDAY TV in Fargo-Moorhead; Channel 8 WDAZ TV in Grand Forks and Winnipeg; Channel 17 KBMY in Bismarck and Dickinson; and Channel 14 KMCY in Minot, Williston and reaching Fort Peck.
