Pete Thayer's Favorite Hot Spots:
Black Mesa

36.61 N  102.98 W
This birding spot is at the very western tip of Oklahoma. Many western birds are found nowhere else in the state. Watch for Chihuahuan Raven. Hike up the Black Mesa Preserve to the highest spot in Oklahoma.

Little River National Wildlife Refuge
33.94 N  94.75 W
Undeveloped wilderness along the Little River is home to many woodland birds. Swainson's Warblers can be found here but try April and May when they are singing to improve your chances.

Salt Plains National Wildlife Refuge
36.81 N   98.20 W
The salt flats are home to Snowy Plover, American Avocet and Least Tern. Sand Creek Bay is very good during shorebird migration.

Wichita Mountains National Wildlife Refuge
34.10 N   98.46 W
Southwest Oklahoma in winter may yield some hard-to-find Longspurs, Sparrows and Lesser Prairie-Chicken. Try the loop from Norman to Altus to Washita National Wildlife Refuge. Eastern and western birds come together here. Watch for bison and elk as well.
