Subject: [SFBirds] Battery Godfrey Highlights 09-27-17: WF Geese, Broad-winged Hawk, Brewers Sparrow etc.
Spent a few hours at Battery Godfrey this morning joined by a number of
others including Brian , Sam, Felix, Peter Pyle, Juan Garcia and two others
whose names I do not know.
With the easterly winds hopes were high for a good movement and we were not
disappointed.

One of the main highlights were the thousands of Vaux's swifts that moved
through all morning in flocks of up to 250-300 birds. I estimated 2,000 to
3,000 birds moving.

Other highlights included
Greater WF Geese- 3,10
Pintail, Wigeon, Scaup and Shoveler
Broad-winged Hawk -1 and possibly 2/3 others: spotted by Peter
Many Merlin, Accipters, Harrier
Many VG and Tree Swallows
Brewers Sparrow- single bird seen for about 2 minutes.
