I'm finally birding again. Yesterday I drove up to Hackberry Flat WMA, with highlights of Franklin's Gulls, American Avocets, American Golden-Plovers, and Baird's Sparrows. Then to Wichita Mts. Wildlife Refuge yesterday afternoon and this morning, with the biggest highlight being a great view of an early Black-capped Vireo. This afternoon I drove up to Salt Plains NWR, and saw Snowy Plovers out on the salt flats. There were Ring-necked Pheasants along most of the roads in the evening slanted sun. Tomorrow I'm going to the Tallgrass Prairie Preserve to look for Greater Prairie-Chickens, and then I'll go home.
