Grassland Bird: Mountain Plover


The Mountain Plover is a shorebird that spends little time on the beach and lives on the open Plains and nowhere near mountains.

Rocky Mountain Bird Observatory offers financial incentives to farmers of the southwest Nebraska panhandle to till around their nests -- which often are in crop fields.

This is the final Playa Country episode in a five-part series on citizen science. It aired on HPPR on Tuesday, July 8, 2014.
