BUZZARDWING CREEK. Buzzardwing Creek rises five miles southwest of Ringgold in extreme western Montague County (at 33°45' N, 97°58' W) and runs east for five miles to its mouth on Belknap Creek, five miles southeast of Ringgold (at 33°45' N, 97°55' W). It crosses flat to rolling terrain surfaced by clay and sandy loams that support water-tolerant hardwood, mesquite, scrub brush, cacti, and various grasses.
