Local Interest - Heron's Head, Candlestick Rock Wren

David Assmann

Started the morning at Heron's Head, where the highlight was watching an OSPREY building (expanding) a nest in the Hunter's Point Shipyard (scope needed). Pier 94 had 128 MEW GULLS and at least 50 AMERICAN WIGEONS.  At Last Port at Candlestick Point, I found one of the continuing ROCK WRENS, along with a nice YELLOW-SHAFTED NORTHERN FLICKER.  WESTERN MEADOWLARKS were everywhere at Candlestick (at least 80 of them), and a number of them were singing. There were 216 RUDDY DUCKS in the cove alone.
