Comments:     It was a sunny and 71F late afternoon birding hike in Oatka today. It was a generally quiet afternoon with a few interesting surprises. I found a Yellow-rumped Warbler in one of the shrubs near the parking lot to get things started off on the right foot. Down by the creek I found two more Yellow-rumps and a pair of Blackpoll Warblers. There I also found my first of the season Brown Creeper. Moving through the fields of Bluebird and White Tail Trails I heard the calls of a couple towhees. Woodpeckers were very activity today, too.

Northern Flicker

Downy Woodpecker amid Poison Ivy Berries -- a favorite of birds!

Black-capped Chickadee

Blackpoll Warbler

Blackpoll Warbler. This bird was sitting still and preening. Perhaps it had just taken a dip in the creek.
