Watching Wildlife in Oklahoma

We Failed to Surprise Two Deer

Rod Foster from Elephant Rock Nature Park near Tahlequah left us a comment on the blog asking us to let everyone know that the Bald Eagles have arrived and can be viewed from the bluffs along the Illinois River at Elephant Rock. Rod also reports seeing two HUGE elk recently along Highway 10.

As longtime Oklahoma birders know, winter is the best time for eagle watching in Oklahoma. This time of year the traffic on the Illinois River gets very light and this always improves the environment for wildlife viewing. Grab that new digital camera you got for Christmas and head over to Elephant Rock Nature Park. The feeling you will get from capturing photos of an Oklahoma elk, eagle or osprey is one you won't soon forget...and a night in one of the Foster's luxury forest yurts would be the perfect conclusion.

I love the blog that you have. I was wondering if you would link my blog to yours and in return I would do the same for your blog. If you want to, my site name is American Legends and the URL is:

If you want to do this just go to my blog and in one of the comments just write your blog name and the URL and I will add it to my site.
