6 active gbh nests at Stow Lake correction and heatwave migration
I was thankful to hear from Stow Lake rookery extraordinaire Nancy DeStefanis, who wanted to assure everyone there are in fact 6 active nests this year. Great news! Apparently they shuffled around after their nesting tree split in half.
On the subject of rocky shorebird declines, I will note the same pattern continues around the expansive rocky areas of lands end i access by kayak and others observers in Pacifica are confirming similar findings.
In arrival news I also heard about several more Wilson’s warblers and hooded orioles arriving in the city over the last couple of days.
Sounds like it will be a day of record-smashing heat and offshore flow today with temps 20 degrees above the seasonal average. There will likely be some northbound hawk and songbird movement.
