I heartily agree with Sebastian's recommendation. Barbara and I did a road
trip to those places in the summer of 2009. We incorporated birding at the
refuges with visits to a number of prairies for wildflowers and
butterflies, etc. The shorebird migration was in full swing at the refuges
and we had a great time. Even visited Chase County, which is the focus of
William Least Heat Moon's history titled "Prairy Erth." Good read, too.
