This morning 3 geese flew over the concrete bridge at the south end of Lake Merced. Two were Canada Geese and the other was a Cackling Goose. They were headed NW over the middle of the lake. I heard a Sora. There is a large concentration of gulls on the lake. The species I saw with binoculars were Western, CA, Mew, Herring and Glaucous-winged.. Considering the number of birds, this would be a great opportunity to study a lot of birds on the water and perhaps come up with something surprising. The flock scatters as the day goes on, so try it in the morning.
