I usually do Compton Gardens and part of the Art Trail at Crystal Bridges,
before heading east to Prairie Creek, the Beaver Lake Nursery Ponds, and
Hobbs SP. I have considered just concentrating on the eastern part of the
county, but I hate losing the warblers at Compton. If you want to do
Compton, that would be fine, and I could spend a little less time driving.
I don't know what anyone else does, although I know that Mike M used to do
Lake Atalanta, Pea Ridge NMP, and Centerton. I tried to steal Lake
Atalanta from him many years ago, since I used to live so close to there.
