Basin area of south-central Nebraska has been recognized as an internationally important
spring staging area for waterfowl. Millions of ducks and geese stop annually in the basin
to feed and roost during their spring migration.
Approximately 90% of the mid-continent
white-fronted goose population, 50% of the mid-continent population of mallards, and 30%
of the continents pintail population stop in the Rainwater Basin each spring. The
Rainwater Basin also serves as important migrational habitat for State and federally
listed species, shorebirds, wading birds, and neotropical migrants.
