Oatka Creek Park • May 2

Brown Thrasher. These are one of mimic birds in the park. The other mimics in Oatka right now are Gray Catbirds. Northern Mockingbirds like to overwinter in Oatka, but seem to nest outside the park boundaries. Sometimes people include Blue Jays with the mimics. If so, they are nesting in the park right now, too!

Yellow Warbler. Warbler Loop in the park is definitely their domain right now!

Large-flower Trillium

Virginia Bluebells

Northern Flicker. A skittish bird, it is hard to get a good picture of them despite their common appearance in the park.

Eastern Bluebird

Tree Swallow
