Fort Mason Orchard Oriole and Local Interest

David Assmann

The young male ORCHARD ORIOLE was seen for the sixth day in a row on Sunday, as it worked its way around the Community Garden at Fort Mason. If it's still there in another week, there's a good chance it will overwinter.  Other sightings for Friday, Saturday, Sunday included - Warblers - YELLOW (9, 11, 8), YELLOW-RUMPED (15, 2, 4), WILSON'S (0,0,1), TOWNSEND'S (8,3,1), BLACK-THROATED GRAY (1,1,0), COMMON YELLOWTHROAT (0,0,1), and ORANGE-CROWNED (2,1,0).
