Golden Gate Audubon Society, First Friday Birdwalk, February 1, 2019, Tilden Nature Area. To Jewel Lake by the road and back by the Lower Pack Rat Trail.
Today's theme was Winter Survival of Birds, especially pertinent this week with the extreme weather in the Midwest a concern for birds and those who love them!
I will post the notes at EBB-Discussion@groups.io
We had a pair of Red-shouldered Hawks "in copulo" at the TNA entrance, a pair of Hooded Mergansers at Jewel Lake, and the Red-breasted Sapsucker continues at the cotoneaster behind the first picnic table at the "blue placard" parking spaces near the entrance. Allen’s Hummingbird has returned, as predicted by the flowering of the Pink-flowering currant.
28 species were seen by 41 observers.
