Oatka Creek Park • June 19

It was a partially sunny and 77F midafternoon birding hike in Oatka today. After being out of town for week for work, it took me a little bit to get back in synch with the park. By far the best encounter was with a female Eastern Towhee that gave me an extended and up-close photo op. I found this remarkable for it seems that the females are very secretive, regardless of what time of the year it is. I found a bulk of the birds on the list hiding from the afternoon heat along the creek as I walked Trout Run Trail. The creek water level is finally down to a level that should start attracting the water birds.
