CBC Wichita Mountain Wildlife Refuge

Posted Wednesday 31st December 2008 at 18:37 by buckskin hawk
I had a couple of extra days off and decided to volunteer for another CBC (Christmas Bird Count) at the Wichita Mountain Wildlife Refuge.

The weather was great. I spent a wonderful day with Mary who is very familiar with the area and the birds. Volunteering for a count is a great way to view birds in a different location and get to know some really great people.

The refuge is located in the southwestern part of the state and is in an ancient mountain range. The website...

CBC Turley, Oklahoma

Posted Friday 26th December 2008 at 17:13 by buckskin hawk
Had the Christmas Bird Count on Saturday the 20th. I went with two others and had a blast. The weather started out nice but a front moved through and the wind turned and the temperature dropped. The birds clung tight to the underbrush and were for the most part quiet. The pecan crop failed this year which has affected the woodpeckers and other winter residents of the pecan fields.
We birded a golf course and park, several farms and lots of rural roadsides. We also hiked the bicycle...

Posted Monday 8th December 2008 at 15:58 by buckskin hawk
