Covering more than 20,000 square miles, the Nebraska Sandhills comprise the largest remaining expanse of native prairie in North America. From trumpeting sandhill cranes and booming prairie-chickens in early spring to dramatic thunderstorms and wailing screech-owls in late summer, these recordings capture the wild beauty of this breathtaking landscape.
