This event will find us in the midst of one of Payne County's better birding spots. We will meet at Lake McMurtry at 9:00 a.m. After a few minutes to get organized, those present will break into groups to walk the area looking for birds. Each group will be led by an experienced birder. There will be a limited number of binoculars you may borrow if you do not own a pair.

We will scour the area for birds for about two hours, then we will meet back where we started for burgers and franks hot off the grill. The meat, buns, condiments, chips and drinks will be provided. Participants are encouraged to bring side dishes and desserts to go with the meal, plus any drinks you might want if lemonade is not enough.

Birding & Burgers is a joint venture of Payne County Audubon Society and the Oklahoma Chapter of The Sierra Club. The event is free and open to the public. It is not necessary to be a member of either organization to attend. There will be small, fun prizes to recognize your birding prowess.

Lake McMurty lies just northwest of the city of Stillwater. The event takes place at the West Recreation Area. Here you will find a map of the lake area:

Your destination is what the map calls the West Ranger Station. Once you enter park property you will find the group at the pavilion depicted center right on this park map:
