This town is the epitome of a remote plains village. A fun informal restaurant at the only gas station in the area makes this a good stop while driving through. Eurasian Collared-Doves, Great-tailed Grackles and occasionally Cassin’s Kingbirds can be seen in town, and in season, Black-chinned Hummingbirds are common at local feeders.
