Mission Bay, Greater White-fronted Goose and Vermilion Flycatcher, Thursday morning

I birded a couple of locations around Mission Bay Thursday morning, October 14, 2021.  On the east shore, I saw the continuing (ebird shows first report by Kerry Ross on 10/4/21), relatively tame Greater White-fronted Goose.  Exact location was near the basketball courts, west of where Clairemont Drive intersects with Mission Bay Drive.  In the northern scrub part of Fiesta Island, there was a female/juvenile-type Vermilion Flycatcher, with a very pale yellow wash on the belly.  The location was just north of the Boy Scout Camp in an unfenced area.  The flycatcher moved around a lot and was last seen at the edge of the perimeter road on the west side of the island.
