Comments:     It was a partially cloudy and 38F early morning birding hike in Oatka today. It was another light bird activity day, with the most notable sighting being a flock of wandering Cedar Waxwings that may be taking up residence in the park for a little while, at least. (This year's bountiful grape crop is becoming increasingly popular with the birds in the park of late.) Today was a good woodpecker day with all five common species in evidence. Ring-billed Gulls continue to float overhead, though I no longer see them in the plowed farm fields surrounding the park. A pair of Mallards graced the creek, though the water was otherwise devoid of birds. The fields of the southern half of the park continue to decline into a total winter silence with only the occasional calls of robins and jays to disturb the ambience.
