Oatka Creek Park • October 14

Great Blue Heron. Whereas yesterday morning was below freezing, this morning was rapidly racing towards the lower 70's! This put a burst of life into the park residents. This heron, however, seemed unaffected by the thermometer reading.

Downy Woodpecker. Downies seem to go hand in hand with chickadees this time of year. Find one, and you find the other in the area.

Orange Sulphur. After an absence of butterflies for a few weeks, butterflies were everywhere total, particular Orange Sulphurs.

Maple Hill. The colors continue to advance.
