From the 1986 edition of A Guide to Birding in Oklahoma published by the Tulsa Audubon Society. This account has been updated as of 2007.


Zink Park at 31 St. and Rockford occupies only about a city block. Park on Rockford on the east. This side of the park is open with tennis courts and a children's playground and is over-used. On early spring mornings Clay-colored Sparrows have joined flocks of Chipping Sparrows on the meadow near the playground. The west side is the best for finding birds, with a massive sandstone bluff and a creek (partially concrete-lined, usually dry except in spring). Here again are many tall trees of several varieties, suitable nesting sites for Northern and Orchard orioles. Rough-winged Swallows have nested in the steep bank; Chestnut-sided Warblers are easy to see in the younger trees; Scarlet Tanagers have been observed and a rare Cerulean Warbler was found and photographed. Carolina and Bewick's wrens often play around the wooded sandstone ledges and steps uphill to the east. The most recent rare species was the Connecticut Warbler.
