My wife and I graduated from casual to amateur birders about five years ago, and since then it's been all about the birds. All vacations are planned with destination secondary to great birding opportunities.
We've decided to ratchet it up and hope to break 100 species submitted for a single day this Saturday. Our thoughts are we'll need to hit several habitat types in one days to make this work.
A couple of initial thoughts are;
Atoka WMA/McGee Creek State park
Spavinaw Hills State Game Refuge/Lake Eucha Park/JT Nickel
Payne County tour Ghost Hollow/Dunkin Bridge/etc. (courtesy of Scott Loss)
We've hit the high 80's pretty regularly when "destination" birding. But I know it's going to be interesting once we get into the nineties.
We appreciate your input and wish us luck!
P.S. The worst day I've ever had birding was a wonderful day spent walking outdoors with my wife.
