Western Kingbird at Lake Merritt

Hilary Powers
 

In the sensory garden, using the near-leafless birch trees as a hunting perch. This is only the second Western Kingbird I've seen there - and the first was in 2012.

The sighting was the conclusion to a wild 4th-Wednesday Golden Gate Audubon walk at the lake: 37 species (as opposed to 27 last August), including all five heron-type birds, lots and lots of baby bluebirds, and the only Wilson's Warbler spotted on the walk since 2013.
