Oatka Creek Park • September 24


Oatka Creek Park, Monroe, US-NY
Sep 24, 2011 3:23 PM - 5:33 PM
Protocol: Traveling
4.3 mile(s)
Comments:     It was a sunny and 75F late afternoon birding hike in Oatka today. It was a quiet walk, with only usual species checking in. Solitary Sandpipers continue along the creek, as does an inquisitive Common Yellowthroat that is becoming a fixture near the dam ruins. Towhees called loudly along Warbler Loop, as did a Pileated Woodpecker that could be heard throughout the eastern portion of the park. Chickadees seemed to be accompanied only by titmice tonight. The fields of the western portion of the park were almost devoid of birds of any kind.
