Lake Merced this morning

Mark W. Eaton <mweaton@...>

I about a half hour this morning at Lake Merced and there were still a number of
migrants including YELLOW WARBLERS and WARBLING VIREOS. There was a kingbird
which I assumed was the TROPICAL KINGBIRD, but I didn't get a good look and was
spooked by outer rectrices that appeared to be prominently edged in white.
However, it seems improbable that the TRKI was magically replaced by a migrant
WESTERN KINGBIRD in exactly same area using the same roosts and having the same
foraging behavior.

I'll check again later this week.

better is ideals. Besides, money is like snow in winter. It
accumulates slowly, but melts away rapidly."
