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.
Habitat: Urban/Suburban, Hedgerow/Shelterbelt, Lake/Pond/Reservoir
