|Tahlequah-Point Defiance Ferry
|Though nearly all of the water birds are visible from shore with a scope, the advantage of the ferry trip consists of unparalleled close-up views of many harder-to-see species.
In fall, Parasitic Jaegers chase the Bonaparte's Gulls and Common Terns and often cruise by at eye-level from the ferry's upper deck.
Red-necked Phalarope show up in their fall migration each year as well. Rhinoceros Auklets and Common Murre are common in winter and with luck, a Marbled Murrelet may be seen.
