Year Birding Findings

After finally readjusting to Pacific Standard Time, I did a west side tour this morning under crystalline skies.  Highlights included:

Cackling Goose - 2 with Canadas and the continuing Gr Wh-Fr Goose on the greens at Harding Park, viewed from the Sunset Circle
Black Scoter - 2 M and 2 F north of the Ft Funston deck.
Marbled Murrelet, or murrelet sp. - 16 from the Sutro Baths and 2 from the Funston deck.  The 8 that came close enough to ID were all Marbleds
White-throated Swift - 15+ over the boathouse at Lake Merced
Tree Swallow - 10+ over North Lake Merced
Bewick's Wren - 1 singing north of the Sutro Baths, and 2 singing east of the Sunset Circle
Red Crossbill - 13 flying from Harding northbound
