Oatka Creek Park • October 10


Yellow-rumped Warbler. There are a lot of these birds in the park at the moment. They seem to be content with eating the Poison Ivy berries as seen here.

Belted Kingfisher. These birds are becoming increasingly camera shy. I had to peak through gaps in the leaves from *way* off in order to get this shot.

Red-bellied Woodpecker. This woodpecker had evidently found an insect nest as it excavated the site for a long time, frequently swallowing the morsels it was digging out. 

Maple Hill. The colors continue to advance.

Yellow-rumped Warbler. On the way back to the parking lot, I ran into these warblers again. One was very curious about my whisper spishing.

Yellow-rumped Warbler. It just couldn't figure out the sounds I was making and contorted its head in every possible angle in an attempt to understand!
