From the 1986 edition of A Guide to Birding in Oklahoma published by the Tulsa Audubon Society. This account was partially reviewed and updated in 2007.


From the Turner Turnpike at Oklahoma City take I 35 to the Wynnewood¬Elmore City exit. Go west on SH 29 for 27 miles; turn south and drive one mile to the lake. In the vicinity of the 1,555-acre lake in the rolling hill country are blackjack oak, cottonwood, pecan and elm trees. Willows are found near the mud flats. On the west side of the lake is pasture land with some cover near the lake shore. Many good birding spots are accessible along the south shore.

During all seasons woodpeckers, including Pileated and Common Flicker, are abundant. During fall and winter months many ducks are on the lake and the Common Loon is observed occasionally. Song, Tree, and Harris's sparrows are plentiful. In the summer months a good variety of songbirds can be seen, including the Blue Grosbeak, Indigo and Painted buntings
