10 spring must-see sites

Earlier this month, John Flicker -- president of National Audubon Society -- cited 10 favorite spring birding sites. They don't appear to be ranked in order of preference.

Kern River Preserve in Weldon, Calif.
Francis Beidler Forest Sanctuary in Harleyville, S.C.
Rowe Sanctuary in Gibbon, Neb.
Waunita Lek in Gunnison, Colo.
High Island, Texas
Easter Egg Rock in Muscongus Bay, Maine
Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge in Oak Harbor, Ohio
Central Park in New York City
Souris Loop National Wildlife Refuge in Minot, N.D.
Tara Wildlife in Vicksburg, Miss.

Have you been to any? Do you agree with Flicker's list? What do you consider your top 10 spring sites?

In addition to Willy's recommendations, I'd add:

Garret Mountain, Passaic, NJ

The Dry Tortugas, 75 miles southwest of Key West, FL

Peveto Beach Woods (formerly Hollyman-Sheely and Henshaw sanctuaries), Cameron Parish, Louisiana

Ottawa ROCKS. Period.

I go every year, and I cry when it's time to go home.
You stumble over the warblers and shorebirds there. It's flippin' fantastic.
