A Bird’s Eye View of the Rainwater Basin

10,000 Birds

Funk WPA is about three miles long and is dissected by roads and dikes. Because of the agricultural value of land in the Great Plains, many WPAs (and areas protected by the state of Nebraska) are islands of wetland habitat surrounded by oceans of cropland. A while back, I wrote about an under-appreciated part of the National Wildlife Refuge System : Waterfowl Production Areas (WPAs).
