There will be better photos than this but here are some crappy ones. High up in Eucs off NW corner. Seemed to head N when last seen by me and others around 11:45.

Good luck to those still looking, Peter

On a long bike ride, and no time to locate it but sounds convincing to me. There alsof is a lost human soul screaming loudly in the Deli.

A WILLOW FLYCATCHER was in the Battery at Fort Mason on Saturday - sorry for the belated report - just confirmed with pictures tonight.

Hey guys,

Finishing up my very last assignment of high school (hooray!) when a Black-and-White Warbler began singing outside the window. Looks like all the “vagrant song quizzes” I’ve been doing with Max are paying off! Was in the large pine tree here (37.7932, -122.4758).

This one at Ft Miley West, singing west of the battery, then flying over me and singing again near the Vet Hospital.

Also a late White-winged Scoter from Sutro.

Both the Ash-throated Flycatchers and Willow Flycatcher here this morning, vocalizing. In the vegetated island on the hill that burned a year ago. North of the middle school track/playground.

Hi all,

Saw a Pileated Woodpecker at El Polin today, around 11AM. 


Actually, heard the cackling dude first, then saw him. He appeared as soon as I arrived, surveying bare trees on the bluff above the restrooms. He was coming from the south, heading northwest, perhaps back towards more typical environs?

Sharing in case it stirs envy. (Sorry for the bad pics. Urgency caused a shaky hand.)

Adam’s Hooded Warbler continues at the rocked area about 1500’ north of concrete bridge. Lake Merced. (37.7138302, -122.4913181)

It was singing when I arrived, though quiet now.

First detected singing, seen briefly, then moved off to the north, still singing.

Hi Birders,

At least 3 Ash-throateds flycatching at the ebird location Middle School Canyon, adjacent to Vis Valley middle school. Also a weeting Willow Flycatcher and a Lark Sparrow. I’ve been sitting in one spot on the hill so haven’t seen if everyone’s still around. Think I heard some Oriole chatter too.

Good B-ing,
Dan

Misc. Sightings - 05.30.20; Summer Tanager; Townsend's Solitaire , YR Warbler

H Cotter
 

Following the showers overnight and this morning I birded a few locations including Battery Godfrey and Lincoln Park/ Lands End .

Battery Godfrey highlights included a calling Summer Tanager- eventually confirmed by Paul Saraceni over at Fort Scott adjacent. Also had a OS Flycatcher and a couple of Lazuli Bunting.

Lincoln Park/ Lands End had a Townsend's Solitaire west of the west wash and below the VA Hospital. Also present was a continuing singing Audubon's Yellow-rumped Warbler at Fort Miley East and a continuing flock of approx 25 Red Crossbill at the east wash.

I was then able to see the Summer Tanager that Paul had confirmed at Fort Scott in the Presidio.

Summer Tanager @ Ft. Scott, 5/30/20

Paul Saraceni
 

A 1st-spring male SUMMER TANAGER was observed today @ the north end of Ft. Scott in the Presidio, at least thru 1:00 PM.  

The tanager was making a circuit among the cypress trees including those just north of the baseball field to those across the parking lot and on the other side of the plastic-covered dirt pile, ranging east into the trees near the Presidio Log Cabin.

Hugh Cotter heard a few call notes this morning from near Battery Godfrey and suspected this species, but did not see or further hear the bird then. I headed over later and as soon as I stepped out of my car near the baseball field @ 11:30 AM I heard the burry song that sounded like this species. The bird continued to move from tree to tree, singing, but hidden.  Eventually I was able to get a visual to confirm the ID, and when Hugh returned we were both able to get documenting photos. It's a splotchy young male showing reddish-orange head, throat, and undertail coverts, mustard-yellow belly, and greenish on the back. Aspects of its song are robin-like or grosbeak-like.  It only gave a pit-tuk call a few times during the observation period. It was still singing when we departed around 1:00.

Also in the area were 1 White-throated Swift, 5 W. Bluebirds, and 3 Hooded Orioles.

Earlier this morning I birded the northern portion of Ft. Funston for a couple of hours but could only find a single migrant there -- a calling Pac.-slope Flycatcher.  There is a nice population of Bewick's Wrens there, with at least 5 or 6 singing birds present.  During a brief seawatch from the bluff I observed 1 RHINOCEROS AUKLET flying N.

Duboce Park Ash-throated

Brian Fitch
 

During our morning neighborhood walk, my wife and I watched an Ash-throated Flycatcher fly nearly the length of the park heading east and out of sight.  A first for this site, and so close to making it on my house list.  Totally missed Oscar's White Pelicans, but there were Western Wood-Pewee's in Buena Vista and Corona Heights, while CH also had a Western Tanager and an unseen singing grosbeak.  No Brewer's that we could detect.
