Things To Do

Birding

Birding in Western Nebraska, on your own or in a small group,

 is best in the Spring of the year. 

Mountain Plover  Charadrius montanus

     The Mountain Plover (pictured above) migrates through the Kimball area in Spring, mid-March to mid-May.

     Mid-April to mid-June is ground nesting time, as well. We offer tours on private property during this time. The driving tour is approximately 90 minutes. The walking tour can last 2 to 4 hours. Tours are by arrangement and group rates are available. Please contact us for more information.

     Spring is also Hawk Watch time. Contact us for more information.
