John and Louise Seier NWR
John W. and Louise Seier National Wildlife Refuge (NWR) is currently closed to the public in order to preserve, restore, and enhance the ecological diversity and abundance of migratory and resident wildlife. The Refuge lies among the sandhills of Nebraska -- the largest remaining tract of mid- and tallgrass prairie in North America.
A distinctive bird of open grasslands, the Bobolink is the only American bird that is black underneath and white on the back. This coloring makes the male stand out while he is performing his displays. After breeding he changes into a drab, camouflaged plumage to spend the rest of the year.
