A Coating of Snow. This dirt road in the park is shown as a real road on a map of the area from 1904. The road is older than that, too!

Oatka Creek Park • November 22

American Pipit. It seemed like there were two pipits in the creek today, though they moved around enough to make it hard to be sure.

American Pipit. In older references, this bird was known as the Water Pipit.

Winter Wren. There may have been as many as three of these wrens along the creek today. (Late) migration continues!

Bald Eagle and American Crow. Don’t be fooled by this picture! These crows along with dozens more were mobbing this eagle. The eagle eventually had enough and flew off.
