This morning around 8am, an adult Brewer's Sparrow was extremely confiding on the steps north of the summit, beautifully showing each of its muted facial pattern, complete white eye-ring, and streaked nape. After a bit, it moved up to the open area at the summit, then went off down the south slope and I lost track of it.
This has been a long-term "jinx" bird for me in SF, and it was hugely satisfying to finally pick up one of my own.
Not a whole lot of other migrants on the mountain this morning. One Blue-gray Gnatcatcher (continuing a fall rife with them), several Western Tanagers, two Black-headed Grosbeaks, and a single Townsend's Warbler was about it for the site, though I got there a bit on the late side and may have missed some morning activity.
