Loutzenhiser Farms

This is a chance to view a working farm with several playas that offer migratory shorebird viewing. In Kit Carson County, where water is often rare, this is a must-hit spot when the playa is full, as the concentrations of shorebirds can be impressively dense. Mountain Plovers have been seen using these farm fields as a staging ground just prior to migration.
