Nothing rare, but there were 50 species at Fort Mason this morning. Two WANDERING TATTLERS and a BLACK TURNSTONE were on the abandoned pier in Aquatic Park. At least 84 WESTERN GREBES were present as well, along with a HORNED GREBE, a RED-BREASTED MERGANSER and a COMMON MURRE. The garden had a WHITE-THROATED SPARROW, an ORANGE-CROWNED WARBLER and a RED-BREASTED SAPSUCKER. An AMERICAN GOLDFINCH (unusual for this time of year), looked quite dull compared to the neighboring bright LESSER GOLDFINCHES. A RED-SHOULDERED HAWK sat on the top of the roof of the Visitor's Center for most of the morning. There were five WESTERN BLUEBIRDS over by the tennis courts.
