Migrants were everywhere this morning at Fort Mason. The continuing BLACK AND WHITE WARBLER made a circuit which included behind the tennis courts, in the Battery, and on the hillside above Aquatic Park. WILSON'S and YELLOW WARBLERS were in the garden and in the Battery. HERMIT WARBLERS were in the garden and the Battery. An ORANGE-CROWNED WARBLER was in the garden. A BLACK-THROATED GRAY WARBLER was in the garden, and just after I left Pandeeswaran found a NASHVILLE WARBLER, also in the garden. Flycatchers included multiple PACIFIC-SLOPE FLYCATCHERS (garden, Battery and above Aquatic Park); WESTERN WOOD PEWEE (garden and Battery), and a WILLOW FLYCATCHER. Saw a HOODED ORIOLE (garden) and a BULLOCK'S ORIOLE (Battery). WESTERN TANAGERS were all over the Battery and in the garden (also saw at least three while walking home along Francisco Street). A female LAZULI BUNTING was in the Battery, and at least one BLUE-GRAY GNATCATCHER was in in the garden (this one had a tail). A WARBLING VIREO was in the Battery. A RED-BREASTED NUTHATCH rounded out the migrants (although there is still a photo of one unidentified bird left to evaluate).
