Fort Mason Local Interest

David Assmann

Sad news on the Bullock's Oriole nesting attempt at Fort Mason.  The pair have abandoned the nest and left, probably because of harassment from American Crows - I witnessed several altercations between the male Bullock's and a Crow, saw part of an Oriole nest on the ground (although the nest looked intact), and the next day the Orioles were gone.  Migration has slowed to a trickle - the only migrant this morning was a WESTERN WOOD PEWEE. And is you are looking for a lost pet BUDGERIGAR, this one was on the north fence of the garden this morning.
