Mt. Davidson odds & ends

Paul Saraceni <Paul.Saraceni@...>

I checked Mt. D. this morning in the hopes that last night's rain dropped
some late migrants down, but no such luck.

This week I've observed a marked increase in numbers of Lesser Goldfinches
(18 on 6/8, 14 on 6/6) and Pine Siskins (11 on 6/8, 6 on 6/6). Has anyone
noted similar happenings elsewhere in the City?

The local Band-tailed Pigeon flock now includes 4 juveniles, usually
roosting or feeding on berries near the Ravine.

Finally, yesterday I observed my first Hooded Oriole (male) at Mt. D.
