Oatka Creek Park • September 24


Hairy Woodpecker. Soon the leaves will be down and it will much easier to see the woodpeckers.

Great Blue Heron. No, this isn't a one-legged bird. The other is tucked up again the body underneath the feathers to keep it nice and warm.

Northern Flicker. These are the numerous "white butt" birds usually seen flying away with the very obvious white rear feathers.

Turkey Vultures. Large kettles (flocks) of Turkey Vultures are now massing over the creek in preparation of their migratory exodus.

Turkey Vultures. Zooming in ...

Turkey Vulture. Zooming in even more!
