Otis

0

Small and isolated, this prairie town has a few mature deciduous trees. The cemetery south of town contains some good juniper hedgerows worth a quick look in winter or migration. Just east of town is the town’s sole sewage pond, which is small but can attract various waterfowl, ibis, and who knows what else.
