Brief Directions

Wichital Mountains National Wildlife Refuge is located just to the northwest of the Lawton/Fort Sill area of Oklahoma.

Notes

I have visited this refuge many times over the years. It's one of my favorite places because it is off the beaten path. It's a popular site among the locals, but most people in the rest of the country are not aware that Oklahoma has such a varied landscape. The park manages herds of Bison, Elk, and Longhorn Cattle, but the "island" ecosystem provides a home for many other species of plants and animals found nowhere else in the state.

Description

An icon of the American plains, this Bison is sunning himself on the prairie grassland. A Sparrow (probably a Field Sparrow, but I can't be certain) performs the symbiotic task of ridding his host of insects.
