Buffalo Lake NWR

Buffalo Lake NWR is a mostly dry lake bed in Randall Co in the Texas Panhandle. There is a large pond still on the southern end of the Reserve with a bird blind and a few trails on the northern end. We used to go out there when I was in college for keg parties but I hadn’t been there in probably 40 years or so and didn’t even know it was a wildlife refuge. I took a drive out there this morning and was quite surprised at the number of birds I saw there. Nothing really unusual, but a nice morning with the birds. Here are photos of a few of them.
