Oatka Creek Park • April 7

It was a sunny and 52F late afternoon birding hike in Oatka today. It was a very standard day in the park with not much out of the ordinary to report. With the sunshine and warmer temperatures, it seemed most birds were still in their afternoon resting and seclusion mode. Still waiting for the next wave of migrants ...

I did receive a report while at the park from one of the local residents that he had a Black-throated Green Warbler in Scottsville today, at the top of the Genesee Valley Greenway.

I am also happy to report that I did not have a bear down by Oatka Creek! :-) (There was one reported recently down the creek several miles away.)
