I couple weeks ago, the wife & I found several BE nests along the Arkansas River in northern Oklahoma. At the time it was really overcast and generally gloomy weather. Seeing that they were predicting sunshine last weekend, we decided to take a (long) ride back up that way Saturday to see what we could see. When we arrived, it was mildly cloudy but it cleared up by mid day. I was glad we made the 2nd trip. :)

(edit: Guess I need to calibrate the monitor on my iMac - these looked good at home & look like crap on PC @ the office.)

We found one nest just below the Keystone Dam and saw one BE in a nearby tree.

We saw 4 more nests on the old country road between the dam & Sand Springs.

The above pics were from a nest closest to Sand Springs.

I really like the first one from the second set. Looks like me and the grandson will be going on a road trip.:-P
