Fort Mason Local Interest - Wilson's Warbler, Bullock's Oriole, Chipping Sparrow, Lincoln's Sparrow, Varied Thrush

David Assmann

The strong winds this morning led to a concentration of birds in the Community Garden, which was relatively sheltered. A WILSON'S WARBLER (first spotted yesterday), was foraging on the north side of the garden. A BULLOCK'S ORIOLE (continuing) was in the same area, rattling away. A LINCOLN'S SPARROW popped up regularly (there may have been two). And a VARIED THRUSH was very vocal on the east side of the garden from inside the shrubs.  Outside the garden a CHIPPING SPARROW was seen, first in front of Bldg 36W and then on the lawn in front of the General's House.  I did not see the Palm Warbler today.
