Lake Merced this morning

Mark W. Eaton <mweaton@...>
 

I about a half hour this morning at Lake Merced and there were still a number of
migrants including YELLOW WARBLERS and WARBLING VIREOS. There was a kingbird
which I assumed was the TROPICAL KINGBIRD, but I didn't get a good look and was
spooked by outer rectrices that appeared to be prominently edged in white.
However, it seems improbable that the TRKI was magically replaced by a migrant
WESTERN KINGBIRD in exactly same area using the same roosts and having the same
foraging behavior.

I'll check again later this week.

"Money can add nothing to what I already have. What enables me to live
better is ideals. Besides, money is like snow in winter. It
accumulates slowly, but melts away rapidly."
