Oatka Creek Park • February 27

Long-eared Owl. Today the owl was in a different tree today and well hidden within grape vines.

Northern Shrike. I found my first ever Oatka Creek Park shrike today! It was along the field portion of Black Billed Cuckoo Trail. On reflection, this area is standard shrike hunting habitat.
