Winter Special Interest Species

The Oklahoma Winter Bird Atlas Project is primarily focused on coverage of the 583 random blocks throughout the state, but there are certain species we are particularly interested in if they are seen during the winter season anywhere in the state.  If you see any of the following species between 1 December and 14 February anywhere in Oklahoma, please fill out and return a printable Winter Special Interest Species Observation Form. For more information contact us.  You do not need to be a regular atlas project volunteer to submit SIS forms.
