This is an update of my last map.
Elk viewing was very good this morning, probably over 100 animals in 4 herds. The very best opportunities were at the opposite ends of Boxley Valley. There is a herd hanging around the fields closest to Ponca, and 2 more herds in the south end of the valley near the Buffalo River.
2 bald eagles were on the Boxley Mill Pond, along with hunting otter early, a flock of at least 30 ducks and of course the 2 trumpeter swans.
Today is a perfect day to hike, a perfect activity to combine with your wildlife watching.
