Otter Lake • September 19

Otter Lake, Oneida, US-NY
Sep 19, 2011 2:00 PM - 3:41 PM
Protocol: Traveling
3.3 mile(s)
Comments:     It was a mostly sunny mid afternoon hike. The woods were quiet, with the silence shattered by occasional jays. At Purgatory Creek, a Winter Wren called an alarm both on the way to the lake and on the return. Later, the plaintive whistles of a Broad-winged Hawk could be heard. At the lake, spishing popped up another Winter Wren, a yellowthroat, and a Swamp Sparrow. Further out along the lakeshore, a kingfisher rattled an alarm. The birds were few, however, they were interesting!

A White Admiral greeted us as we started out on our first hike of the Adirondacks this year!

Most of our hikes included scenes like this. Being the first hike of the trip, I chose to document the typical scenes.
