This site is a working ranch with extensive shortgrass prairie and playa lakes, hosting all of the regional specialties. Burrowing Owls nest here annually. During spring and fall migration, there is great potential to see huge concentrations of waterfowl and many shorebirds, including Long-billed Curlew. The owner is sometimes available to provide tours, and can regale you with tales about local history and wildlife.
