Pete Thayer's Favorite Hot Spots:
Fontenelle Forest Nature Center
41.16 N   96.19 W
The deciduous forest along the Missouri river make this a great spot to look for warblers, vireos and even raptors. Sharp-tailed grouse perform courtship displays in the spring. The wetlands area is a good spot to look for Virginia Rails.

Fort Niobrara National Wildlife Refuge
42.91 N   100.48 W
A deep wooded canyon runs through the sandhill prairie. Watch for Sharp-tailed Grouse and Greater Prairie-Chicken. Sparrows are plentiful in the grasslands while songbirds are easier to see in the wooded areas along the Niobrara River.

Oliver Reservoir
41.09 N   103.96 W
Near Kimball, this is a migrant trap that has produced more than one state record. Fall is the best season to look for western birds in the riparian habitat.

Platte River / Crane Meadows Nature Center
I-80 Exit 305
40.39 N   99.04 W
Half a million Sandhill Cranes jam into a 150 mile stretch of the shallow Platte River in Mid-March. They fatten up in local fields in preparation for the continuation of their migration north.
