Fort Mason Local Interest - FOS Golden Crowned Sparrow

David Assmann

A short visit to Fort Mason this morning was fairly productive.  The number of WHITE-CROWNED SPARROWS has increased over the past two days, possibly due to returning birds. A FOS GOLDEN-CROWNED SPARROW was in the garden as well. Warblers today included at least 19 YELLOW WARBLERS, 3 ORANGE-CROWNED WARBLERS, 3 TOWNSEND'S WARBLERS, 1 WILSON'S WARBLER and a BLACK-THROATED GRAY WARBLER.  There were at least 7 WESTERN TANAGERS, 3+ RED-BREASTED NUTHATCHES, 3 WARBLING VIREOS (Garden and Battery), 4 PACIFIC-SLOPE FLYCATCHERS, 2 WESTERN WOOD PEWEES, 1 HOUSE WREN (Garden) and 1 BLUE-GRAY GNATCATCHER (Garden).
