Getting an early start on the weekend today I attended the noon SFBFF

field trip on to Skaggs Island.

The trip leader was John Robinson.

Raptors in volume ruled the day:

Red-tailed Hawks,

White-tailed Kites

Northern Harriers

American Kestrels

and a single Prairie Falcon.

Earlier in the week both Rough-legged Hawk and Ferruginous Hawk had

been seen on the Island.

The 9AM morning group today had a Peregrine Falcon.

Two interesting land birds were;

Several sighting's of the "San Pablo Bay" Song Sparrow - does anyone

have detail information on this subspecies?.

A Ruby-crown Kinglet with a black face.

The Kinglet was found in a blackberry bush, the black face may have

come from eating the blackberries.

I later stopped by the Festival Headquarters on Mare Island.

There are many NGO exhibitors, food booth's, art work and government

agencies, it's all good.

Enjoy the weekend

Rich Cimino
