Oatka Creek Park • November 4

Dark-eyed Junco. This is a female.

Maple Hill color watch

Golden Eagle. According to The Birds of Monroe County, New York, Annotated List, Golden Eagles are “casual, very rare winter visitant[s]”. Only four winter records were on file as of 1985.

Golden Eagle. Golden Eagles are far more likely to be in our area during the spring migration. Even then, they are uncommon.

Pileated Woodpecker. Yes! The leaves are down now, making it much easier to spot these birds. 

Pileated Woodpecker. This is a male.

Northern Mockingbird. I’ve started a casual Northern Shrike watch at Black Creek Park on the way home from Oatka. Today, perching where a shrike would typically be, was this mockingbird.
