SF weekend sightings

Smokey Bear

Tried for the yellow warbler and tailless Parula at Ft. Mason early Friday morning, but it was D-E-D dead. Just finches, and a subdued Mockingbird.

Saturday morning Crissy Lagoon was alive with so many herons, 300 Elegant Terns, four White Pelicans feeding, and a coyote at East Beach.

Today Lafayette Park delighted with a bright Wilson’s Warbler, Black Phoebe, and a two-barred, orange-mandibled, almond-eyed, tail-pumping Pacific Slope Flycatcher all in the same tree. Two Scrub Jays were yelling nearby. A Downy Woodpecker whinnied. They’re not rare but I don’t get to see them often in Lafayette Square. The usual orioles, Acorn Woodpeckers, parrots, and three red-tails were present too.
