Lake Merced Concrete Bridge, Blackpoll, late migrants

10/10/21, LM Concrete Bridge 10:47 - 12:50 PM. Wow on the weather! Birds liked it too based on the level of activity. 

One rarity: HY Blackpoll Warbler in the cypress mound east end of bridge. Place was hopping. High numbers of regular migrants, arriving winter birds joining the locals too:
Other highlights:
Northern Shovelers 2 in south impound
Sora singing
Warbling Vireo, getting late-ish
Hermit Thrush
6 warbler species including:
Common Yellowthroat: min 8 detected visually, mostly quiet, many of these likely migrants
Yellow Warblers: lots in willows, at Vista Grande too (separate list), late push
Yellow-rumps - many, many now, Myrtles too
