Sand Hills - Phillips County
Ownership: State
Description: County Road 35 runs north-south through a privately owned section of beautiful sandsage just north of the Yuma County line. Walking the road on an early summer morning is likely to net you oodles of sparrows (Vesper, Grasshopper, Cassin's, Lark and Brewer's) as well as Lark Bunting. Keep your eyes open for Dickcissel (around areas of cultivation) and Blue Grosbeak. Yes, Virginia, there are Greater Prairie-Chickens here--but you will need to get ludicrously lucky to see one.

Habitat: Sagebrush
Directions: From Holyoke, drive south on US 385 four miles to CR 14 and turn right (west). Go two miles and turn left (south) on CR 35. The Sand Hills start about two miles south of here and run about four miles to the Yuma County line.
