Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge

10 Sep

A very welcomed morning last weekend led us out of Sallisaw, OK down the road a bit on one of our favorite types of drives.  The air was cool, the sun bright and a very blue sky was filmed with high clouds that rapidly changed throughout the day. 

This was our first time at this refuge.  We know however what to expect at different times of the year the types and populations of wildlife, particularly birds.  The 20,800 acre refuge has suffered this long summer with little rain and hot temperatures.   The soggy, boggy areas of of the refuge are not so soggy.  Much of the lush adequate habitat is declining to drought related stress.  We saw few birds. 

A huge portion of the state of Oklahoma is in extreme to exceptional drought.  Pray for rain.

    It seems that rain is needed everywhere except in the Northeast!
