North Lake Basin

LOOKING Closer

Previously located on North Lake Basin Wildlife Management Area near Utica, Nebraska, this camera focused on a large playa wetland in the Rainwater Basin. The Rainwater Basin is the largest playa complex in Nebraska and it is a globally important stopover for migratory birds such as northern pintails and buff-breasted sandpipers. Playa wetlands form in depressions where a thick clay layer causes water from precipitation to pond on the surface.
