SF Botanical Garden Friday October 8


Lots of folks looking for the Yellow-green Vireo this morning and I was there with many until 10 AM.  Looks like I did not stay long enough and missed the Vireo, but the Black-throated Blue Warbler was also a stunner.  Many of us also saw a Chipping Sparrow and Pacific-slope Flycatcher near the Guatemalan Fir.  Thanks, Ken for cluing us in to that tree.

As an aside, I also missed the Dusky Warbler in Corte Madera because I did not stay there 3-1/2 or 4 hours.  That's birding.
