To add to Frank's thrush,
I saw one today 3-25 at the West end of Shoreline Lake in Mountain View; it is backlit and can't see it's tail, but I called it a hermit
On an unrelated subject, on 3-26 there will be aerial spraying for (or against) mosquitos along the Bay in Santa Clara county and all venues near the Bay will be closed
