Comments:     It was a clear and sunny, 72F late afternoon birding hike in Oatka today. It was an extremely quiet hike today with precious few birds of any kind. The creekside had a dribble of activity with a Black-capped Chickadee, Red-bellied Woodpeckers, Downy Woodpeckers, a Northern Flicker, Golden-crowned Kinglets, White-throated Sparrows, and White-breasted Nuthatches -- all standard fare. It was interesting how Canada Geese went from turning the skies black with huge flocks to not a single one tonight.

American Bullfrog. The seventy degree weather seemed to bring out the sounds and activities of frogs and insects today.
