Thanks to Jim Deming for leading a group of birders to locations in the Osage County area Saturday. We saw swans, eagles, harriers and rough-legged hawks, among other interesting birds, and had a great time, as always, with everyone in the group.
Being the late risers we are, Mary and I went up the day before to avoid the long Saturday morning drive. On the way, we stopped at Boomer Lake, Sooner Lake and Ponca City Lakes and saw some of the birds that have been reported in those locations recently. I have included links to our eBird checklists below with a few sub-par photos of the birds to give you an idea of what you missed.
