Pete Thayer's Favorite Hot Spots:
Felsenthal National Wildlife Refuge
33.15 N   92.14 W
Wintering waterfowl like the rivers, lakes and streams here. The area is flooded from November through early June. The bottomland hardwood forests are a major stopping point for migrating songbirds.

Holla Bend National Wildlife Refuge
35.20 N   93.14 W
This is the place to be during the winter. Snow Geese and Bald Eagles are here. Raptors are easy to spot. In spring and summer look for Scissor-tailed Flycatchers and Lark Sparrows.

Lake Chicot State Park
34.41 N   90.74 W
This is the largest oxbow lake in the country. Restoration in the 1970s saved the lake and it is now a great birding spot. Large wading birds are everywhere. Warblers in migration are easy to see as well.

Ouachita National Forest
34.48 N   94.06 W
The US Forest Service's Buffalo Road Demonstration Area, 7 miles south of Waldron, is a great spot for Red-cockaded Woodpecker, Bachman's Sparrow and Brown-headed Nuthatch.
