Oatka Creek Park • January 16

Comments:     It was an overcast 38F late afternoon birding hike in Oatka today. It was a quiet evening. Woodpeckers were in evidence and I had a nice encounter with a Pileated Woodpecker. As I was walking along Black Billed Cuckoo Trail, the Pileated started calling from deep in the woods. Fortunately, there was a pronounced deer trail right at my feet, so I took that towards the woodpecker. Still at some distance, I eventually spotted the wary bird and contented myself with some photographs taken at range. That would pretty much be the highlight of the outing.
