The heath hen is an extinct subspecies of the greater prairie chicken, a large North American bird in the grouse family. It became extinct in 1932. Heath hens lived in the scrubby heathland barrens of coastal North America from southernmost New Hampshire to northern Virginia in historical times, but possibly south to Florida prehistorically. The other subspecies of prairie chickens inhabited prairies from Texas north to Indiana and the Dakotas
