PONCA, Neb. (AP) - Game and Parks Commission staffers have prepared waterfowl viewings and bird tours during Marsh Madness at Ponca State Park in northeast Nebraska.

The park sits on the west bank of the Missouri River and serves as a feeding, breeding and staging ground for migratory birds. Nearly 300 bird species have been sighted there and more than 70 of those breed in the area. More than 20 waterfowl species have been observed from the park’s blinds.

Guided and unguided bird tours are available. Guided sunrise and sunset waterfowl blind viewings are scheduled each Saturday in March, but space is limited.

Contact the park at 402-755-2284 for more information about Marsh Madness, blind reservations, other activities and lodging discounts.
