Oatka Creek Park • October 18

Oatka Creek Park, Monroe, US-NY

Protocol: Traveling
4.2 mile(s)
Comments:     It was a cloudy and 61F late afternoon birding hike in Oatka today. It was a fairly birdy walk today with a good number of Yellow-rumped Warblers throughout the park. The creekside hosted a pair of Winter Wrens (one on either end of the trail) and a Swamp Sparrow among the cattails north of the trail. On the way back down the dirt road to the parking lot, a Red-winged Blackbird was 'conkeree'ing from the adjacent cattails while a female Eastern Towhee called from the shrubs along the road. Some spishing produced a nice photo-op of the latter.
