Oatka Creek Park • March 1


Oatka Creek Park, Monroe, US-NY
Mar 1, 2012
Protocol: Traveling
4.8 mile(s)
Comments:     It was a windy and overcast 42F hike in Oatka today. The first Red-winged Blackbird 'konkeree!'s of the season for the park were heard today. Canada Geese numbers continue to rise as more frequent and larger flocks were seen in the sky. The migration wave of robins was still at the base of Warbler Loop, feeding and calling to each other. A flock of House Sparrows, largely absent from the park this winter, appears to be either passing through, like the robins, or settling into the area. My guess is the former, but time will tell. (Previous appearances of House Sparrows in the park have been short lived.) Finally, Eastern Bluebirds were feeding on multifloral rose hips along Bluebird Trail.
