Oatka Creek Park • May 21


Song Sparrow. Today was the day of the annual field trip to Oatka Creek Park by the Rochester Birding Association.

Eastern Bluebird

Willow Flycatcher. The only easy way to tell many flycatchers apart is from their calls. Fortunately, this one sang out and made the ID a snap.

Yellow-billed Cuckoo. A poor picture, but my only one before the bird left the area. My friend Dana Kalir was on the trip, too, and got a much better picture here: https://picasaweb.google.com/107384188182150062844/RBAFieldTripAtOatka#5880540682150513042 .
