Re: LAGO Bernal Hill

David Armstrong

Hi all - in my haste to report this I mistakenly said east rather than north hillside (Folsom St. bends around). the spot is very close to where Folsom ends and Bernal Heights Blvd. begins

37°44'35.5"N 122°24'38.7"W

Good luck if you chase them

Great finds, David! Eddie, your lists from Bernal are fantastic...

Willow Flycatcher continues at the Potrero Hill Rec Center, currently in the eucs just meters south of the cement stairs/beginning of wood path. Silent. 

Larry Goldfinch pair heard and barely seen at Bernal. They flew south up the hill from Folsom entrance and maybe a bit west. The call notes sounded like "shwing:" fast double notes and a bzzzz. I did not see or hear the gnatcatcher.

I'd wager they're the ones you've been observing. Given they bred in SF last year, why not again in 21?

Hi all,
Great find David! I wonder if these goldfinches are new or the same bird/birds seen over the past 2 weeks. Seems pretty unlikely that there have been 4 different birds in the same area in 2 weeks but possible? Could this be a pair poking around trying to nest?
Happy spring

Male and female Lawrence's Goldfinch on east hillside off Folsom St. right now. Also Western Kingbird

Earlier a Willow Flycatcher at Potrero Rec Center in eucs above playground. Good mix of migrants around with tanagers calling in multiple locations.
