Oatka Creek Park • January 25

Oatka Creek Park, Monroe, US-NY
Jan 25, 2012
Protocol: Traveling
4.6 mile(s)
Comments:     It was an overcast 32F hike in Oatka today. Despite the relatively warm temperature and lack of wind, it was a penetratingly cold afternoon. It appeared to affect the birds, too, as they were virtually nonexistent. The quiet was broken only once along Warbler Loop when a small flock of cardinals boiled up from the shrubbery to look at me before disappearing again. White-throated Sparrows 'seeped' from the shrubs throughout the park, though rarely showed themselves. Even the crows seemed somewhat subdued. The only woodpecker I found was on a feeder in the private property adjacent to the parking lot.
