Oatka Creek Park • February 10

Bufflehead. Looks like a male molting into breeding plumage.

Common Merganser

Pileated Woodpecker. This may be a Black Ash tree and the woodpeckers may be stripping the bark looking for hibernating Emerald Ash Borers. I am now seeing such bark stripping throughout the park.
