Come to Nebraska
You came to see the Sandhill Cranes, but you’re staying to see the Greater Prairie-Chickens, Burrowing Owls, Long-billed Curlews and dozens of other species your state just doesn’t offer. Find everything you need to know about your stay.
Nebraska is a very cool place to come and see a wide range of birds. The landscape and climate are so varied from east to west that it offers habitat for a variety of eastern and western species. You’ll need both Sibley’s Guide West and East here.
Watching the Sandhill Crane migration in Nebraska is an incredible experience. But so is seeing Greater Prairie-Chickens and Burrowing Owls in their natural habitats. Birders can check a number of must-see birding wonders off their list with a visit to the state.
