During the spring season at Flint Hills there is abundant wildlife to observe. On a sunny day, thousands of snow geese can be seen and heard for miles while migrating. Wild turkeys can be heard gobbling and displaying. In April, warblers return, white pelicans can be seen migrating, and shorebirds start to arrive. And with the arrival of spring weather, smoke can been seen for miles and the smell indicates prescribed fire season has begun.
