Oatka Creek Park • March 1

Red-breasted Merganser. The male was still in the creek today and was only slightly less skittish. At least his head wasn't under water!

I did not find the owl today. I looked in all of his known roost trees and several other trees in the area that are similar to the roost trees. Nothing. My rule of thumb with such birds is that you need two solid weeks of no-shows before concluding it has left the area. I may find it tomorrow, again. Here's hoping!

Bonus Picture:

Red-tailed Hawk. Yesterday, this beauty landed on a tree outside of my home office window. The picture was taken through the window.
