Subject: [SFBirds] Chestnut-sided and Palm Presidio
During an early morning cruise to Presidio Hills there was a Palm Warbler associating with the sparrow flock, eventually moving into the willows. Also a bewicks wren, spotted towhee, a couple House Wrens and lincolns sparrows there. Ft Scott lawn was very active and had a quite late perched Violate-green Swallow and chipping sparrow. Say's phoebe, meadowlarks, bluebirds and coyotes too.
This evening while with Parke Custis I found a chestnut-sided Warbler along Lobos creek. There were lots of warblers in the pines and oaks bordering the creek and across from the parking lot. The chestnut-sided flew into the lone scarlet flowering euc (mostly done flowering) across the creek in a backyard. It was a bit of a stinker and liked to hide. That tree is a favorite of yellow warblers and w tanagers. Bt gray and yellow today.
I had at least 10 Red-breasted Nuthatches scattered all around over the presidio with at least 3 at lobos. Good numbers of purple finches, pine siskins and cedar waxwings at Mt. Lake Park. Fewer and fewer summer migrants but increasing numbers of sparrows all over, it's officially Sparrow Month...
