Oatka Creek Park • June 21

It was a partially sunny and 84F late afternoon birding hike in Oatka today. Things started off on a nice foot with a hummingbird perch atop a tall evergreen adjacent to the parking lot as I arrived. It stayed for a nice photo op before eventually leaving. The remainder of the walk was largely uneventful. A small collection of swallows was flycatching near the creek, but not in the large numbers or species diversity that later in the summer will produce. A female Red-winged Blackbird was perched near the nesting boxes along Bluebird Trail, appearing a bit out of place in Oatka for this species. The Brown Thrasher was singing along the dirt road again tonight as I walked back towards the parking lot.
