By Jim Bates, from the OKC Audubon Society


The following, by Jim Bates, is excerpted from the OKC Audubon Society Crystal Lake Page. Please visit their page their page for a complete account:

Description: A small 60 acre city owned lake used as a special fishing area in the western Oklahoma City area. Cattail marshes are located at the NW and SW corners of the lake. Fields and brushy areas surround the lake with a wooded area on west side.

Directions: Go south from Interstate 40 at MacArthur exit about two miles and turn right on SW 15th Street (just before the bridge) and go one mile( just past a salvage yard) and turn in a gate which goes to the lake.

Alternate vantage point: Take the Rockwell Avenue exit from Interstate 40 and go south over Interstate 40 to the end of Rockwell and then walk a short distance to the west side of the lake.

Good birding areas nearby: Cedar trees south of SW 15th Street after turning off MacArthur Boulevard can have accipiters and owls in the winter (should get permission to enter).

Please see the excellent OKC Audubon Society Crystal Lake Page for complete details on birding this area and the birds one may find.
