This was one of the birdiest days I’ve seen on the Outer Point. The Fish Docks trees were crawling with flycatchers — many PACIFIC-SLOPES and WESTERN WOOD-PEWEES with a few each of WILLOW and OLIVE-SIDED in the mix. One Willow was intriguingly greenish-backed and several of us agreed it looked rather unlike our usual Western Willows.
Warblers were a HERMIT, a few BLACK-THROATED GRAYS, and two or three YELLOWS. Plus some WARBLING VIREOS. And Dea Freid directed me to a close-up juvenile WANDERING TATTLER at the end of the lower trail (at the actual “fish dock”).
Nunes Ranch had a few more flycatchers and a nice CASSIN’S VIREO.
And on the way out, I joined David Tomb at the EASTERN KINGBIRD stakeout along Sir Francis Drake just after (east of) the intersection with Drakes Beach Rd.
