Oatka Creek Park • July 24


Cedar Waxwing. Juvenile Cedar Waxwings are now showing up in the bug-eating waxwing flock seen daily over the creek. The tail of this young bird was deep orange rather than the typical sunshine yellow.

Belted Kingfisher. This is also a juvenile from the reddish highlights in its upper bluish belt. It was intent on hunting the waters below.
