Resources

For anyone looking for more information on birds, birding in general or birding in Nebraska here are some helpful links.

Nebraska Birding Trails is one of the go-to resources for anyone interested in birding in Nebraska they have a wealth of local knowledge of trails and other viewing areas that will be helpful to visitors and locals.

Top 5 Birding Trails in Nebraska may just be one persons opinion but it’s a great tool for anyone looking to swing through the state and do some quality birding in a limited amount of time.

It wouldn’t be much of a birding site if we didn’t include a link to the Nebraska Audubon Society now would it?

If you’re thinking of coming out for the Sandhill Crane migration be sure to check out the Crane Trust Nature and Visitor Center in Grand Island, NE.  It offers a fantastic experience for birders both during the migration and all year long.

No matter if you’re just starting out in birding or have years of experience the Cornell Lab of Ornithology is absolutely the most valuable resource on the web.  If you’re not careful it’s easy to lose hours or days poking around in the wealth of information on that site.

A great resource that will give you live updates of where people have spotted specific birds, please reference eBirds.org.  There you will find current hotspots and what people are viewing updated on a daily basis.

If you come up on an injured bird, please contact Nebraska Wildlife Rehab Inc at

For anything and everything Sandhills you should visit their official tourism website.

Note: Nebraska is blessed with abundant, diverse wildlife and habitat.  Nebraska is a biological crossroads of North America where prairie meets ponderosa pine forests, where wetlands speckle the landscape and over 23,000 miles of rivers and streams ribbon through the landscape.  The vast grasslands of the Sandhills stretches the imagination to pioneer days while the pine ridge escarpments tower over the landscape.  Nebraska is the place where plant and wildlife communities of different regions meet, giving the state a rich diversity of wildlife viewing opportunities.  For that reason, please leave the environment exactly how you found it.
