Didya know that the GSO (Great State of Oklahoma) is only second in the nation (to Texas) in species of birds? Birding is a fast-growing hobby here and it attracts visitors from all over. We have so many different ecological areas packed into a small state – from the deserts of Black Mesa to the Coastal Plains of McCurtain County, Oklahoma is one of the richest states in terms of species diversity!
Here is a nifty site with superb pictures of birds found in Oklahoma. Besides the great, detailed pictures you will find most of them have a few paragraphs about the natural history of that bird. The site also has a checklist for Oklahoma birds, a link to Oklahoma Butterflies, Oklahoma Dragonflies, Oklahoma Gardening and more. http://www.birdsofoklahoma.net/
