Took a break from Fort Mason, and started the morning at Crissy Lagoon, where a BAIRD'S SANDPIPER flew in with four SANDERLINGS near the bridge. A juvenile COOPER'S HAWK kept popping up (it's been there for a couple of weeks or more). Two young COMMON YELLOWTHROATS were at the western end of the Lagoon. A BELTED KINGFISHER worked the entire Lagoon. Otherwise mostly the expected species were present, with a few late swallows, as well as shorebirds and gulls.
Next stop was Battery Godfrey, which mostly had resident birds. A number of ELEGANT TERNS were over the water, two WILSON'S WARBLERS were on the Battery to Bluffs trail, and a TURKEY VULTURE soared back and forth.
The BLACK THROATED SPARROW continued at the corner of Washington and Battery Caulfield. Final stop was Kobbe and Upton, which had a few migrants - two WESTERN TANAGERS, an ORANGE-CROWNED WARBLER, a BLACK-THROATED GRAY WARBLER, a WARBLING VIREO and a YELLOW WARBLER. 12 CEDAR WAXWINGS were at the parking lot.
