Oatka Creek Park • July 25

Peck's Skipper. There are tons of tiny butterflies throughout Oatka Creek Park. They can be quite maddening to try and identify, too. However, I gave it try with this small yellow-brown skipper and found it to be a common Peck's Skipper. A tiny delight!

Willow Flycatcher. As the seasons change, so does my route through the park. I have added Maple Hill back to my route and as in previous years, the Hill is home to a group of Willow Flycatchers. Their "wit!" calls can be heard throughout this area.
