Slow-ish day May 12 at Fort Rosecrans, but some migrants passing through

Slow day but a nice day out. There was a Hammond's Flycatcher on the east side, just  south of the  Eucalyptus Grove (probably continuing), a Cassin's Vireo in pines on the west side in a pine near the north fence line, and at least 6 Hermit Warblers, 4-6 Wilson's Warblers, 3 Townsend, 4 Yellows and other expected warblers coming through, and many Western Tanagers, and a superabundance of Pacific Slope Flycatchers and Western wood Pewees and grosbeaks.  I thought I saw one Willow Flycatcher. The population of Juncos seems to be producing many young here, more so than the Chipping Sparrows, which also had some fledglings about.  The towhees are everywhere and Lesser Goldfinches are more numerous than I have seen in the past.
