Nebraska is Central Flyway

Within the borders of Nebraska there is an opportunity to view over 400 species of birds, with a record of over 454 birds setting foot in Nebraska according to the Nebraska Ornithologists’ Union.  Nebraska is in the central flyway, a highway in the sky for migrating birds.  Nebraska is on the southern edge of the nesting grounds for northern-breeding species and on the northern edge for southern breeding species.  The sandhills are as pristine an expanse of grassland as can be found on the continent, and provide a reliable viewing opportunity  for many declining grassland birds.  The Rainwater Basin and Platte River are internationally important for migrating birds.
