Introduction: Kiowa County. Long, thin, flat and sparsely populated, this eastern plains county is not on any major river corridor, but its big lakes and small woodlots are a regular stop for all Colorado birders on their spring trips to the southeast, and summer and fall have brought outstanding rarities to the county. It is well worth a stop at any season.
