The largest town in Kiowa County is a good spot to stop for lunch or as a base for birding the area. While here, there are a couple of good spots to check out. The small town park should be checked for migrants. The waste water lagoons, just just south of town, sometimes have a few ducks on them as well. South and west of the waste water lagoons is Jackson’s Pond, a natural recreation site including, hiking, biking, wildlife viewing, fishing and more. Look for waterfowl, deer, kingfisher, raptors, shorebirds and more wildlife along the shore of the pond and Kiowa Creek at this site.
