Hit Sue Bierman just before sundown and the first bird I laid eyes on was a WESTERN MEADOWLARK looking desperately out of place under the skyscrapers. I was happy to find that the bird had a friend, another terrified Meadowlark under a tree that 3 Yellow Warblers were flycatching from. The ground floor of Sue Bierman is a hostile environment for anyone, so I felt for these poor little birds stranded there.
150+ crows flew over in about 5 seconds of paying attention to them. I've seen thousands flying to roost in this part of the city. I wonder if crows outnumber the cumulative sum of all other birds in the city on a given day. Hope not.
A Peregrine Falcon flew south and landed on the top corner of a skyscraper above Hyatt Regency.
Earlier in the day from my roof, I had a Flicker fly from Russian Hill to a Eucalyptus under Coit Tower.
