Subject: [SFBirds] Fort Mason Migrants
With the fog and wind returning this morning, there were more birders than migrant species at Fort Mason, but with the additional sets of eyes, some good migrants were still found. Three BLUE-GRAY GNATCATCHERS, including the one without a tail, were in the garden. Warblers were scarce this morning, with only a handful of WILSON'S WARBLERS, and a heard YELLOW WARBLER. A WILLOW FLYCATCHER was in the garden, a WESTERN WOOD PEWEE and an OLIVE-SIDED FLYCATCHER were in the Battery and a PACIFIC-SLOPE FLYCATCHER was next to the stairs. A WESTERN KINGBIRD was in the Battery, and several WESTERN TANAGERS put in appearances in several places. Two BLACK-HEADED GROSBEAKS were in the garden, and one was perched on a tree above Aquatic Park with a number of HOUSE FINCHES for about 20 minutes until a COOPER'S HAWK made a clumsy attempt to catch one of the perching birds.
