Roundup 9/26/2020

6:45AM to 1:30PM

Areas covered in order: McLaren Park amphitheater and McNab pond, Visitacion Valley Middle School, Pointview Park, Hunter’s Point Drainage Ditch, Yosemite Slough Open Space, India Basin Shoreline Park, Heron’s Head Park.

Overall quite slow, I missed some very common species. Long-billed Dowitcher was going to just be a sp. There was a bird that look good but I couldn’t confirm visually. Thankfully Aaron reported hearing it, so I’ve counted it.
