Bird Watchers Welcome at White River Lodge

Though we enjoy the birds all year, Spring makes you take the time to look, listen, and smile.  Last year about this time, we had a couple from Fort Smith, AR come stay with us for a few days.  Sandy was an avid, knowledgeable bird-watcher and took her scope wherever she went.  David also enjoyed the birds but was more the photographer.  Here’s their 36 bird list for the lodge and down on the lake while they were here.  Thanks Sandy and David.
