Birding at The Abbott Ranch
“Like the Sahara desert, but covered top to bottom in lush green grass.”
With over 30,000 acres of rolling, natural grass in the heart of the Sandhills in Nebraska, the Abbott Ranch is happy to welcome you. Originally homesteaded in the late 1800s, this sixth-generation working cattle ranch has provided an abundance of wildlife for over a century. In addition to the grasslands, our ranch consists of shelterbelts, ponds, marshes, and wetland areas. We have 30 miles of spring-fed, open-water tributaries of natural rivers, creeks, and man-made ditches, including an 11 mile stretch along the Snake River.
The ranch is comprised of two locations; the Largest being the main ranch location and the smaller ‘tailbone,' ranch located 20 miles away. A variety of waterfowl can frequently be found throughout the entire ranch.
Our lodging entails an old, ranch-style bunkhouse that has been well maintained. The bunkhouse has beds for nine people, plus a couch for a tenth. It includes plenty of chairs, a TV, fridge, microwave, and a full bathroom. In addition, the ranch barn hayloft is just 40 yards away and offers a great entertainment area with a bar, pool table, shuffleboard, TV, fridge, microwave, grill, and wood stove. Wifi is available in the bunkhouse, although cell service is spotty throughout the property.
The Abbott Ranch is looking forward to meeting you and supporting your next booked trip!
