Comments:     It was a mostly sunny, windy, and 84F late afternoon birding hike in Oatka today. It was another extremely quiet afternoon with all but four species on the list being found in one location along Trout Run Trail by the creek. At that location, with the exception of the Solitary Sandpiper, the Belted Kingfisher, and the American Crow, the remaining species were part of a mixed flock anchored by chickadees and titmice. I could identify a Bay-breasted Warbler and a Blackpoll Warbler, but other similiar yellowish warblers with black wings with white wing bars moved on before being IDed. A Carolina Wren gave its cheer call and a number of different woodpeckers called out. The flock responded fairly well to spishing with a nuthatch and a couple pewees approaching me quite closely. On my way out of the parking lot, I glance up and saw an impressive low altitude vortex of Turkey Vultures over the Union Street bridge.
