Rainwater Basin: The Central Plains, Neck of the Hourglass
Spring migration habitat in the Central Plains of the United States is crucial to the breeding population of many waterfowl species. The Platte River, Rainwater Basin, Cheyenne Bottoms, and McPherson Valley are losing wetlands each year, limiting space for waterfowl stopping over in this region. This area, known as the "neck of the hourglass," needs to be expanded to provide sufficient resources for migrating birds.
