This morning we saw the continuing female Tufted Duck at the Nob Hill Pond in Redwood Shores. It was resting near Lesser Scaup along the southern shore of the pond. This is the fourth year for this duck, first found by Ron on January 25, 2018. Don Pendleton took some excellent photos on Saturday, January 2nd which are in eBirds. This will give you a good idea of what the duck looks like now.
Yesterday, the hatch year Snow Goose was at the Golden Gate National Cemetery. This Snow Goose looks very much like, and likely is, the hatch year Snow Goose that was originally found by us on November 14, 2020 at Holy Cross Cemetery. It was last seen at Holy Cross on December 26th and then reported on December 29th by a team from the San Francisco CBC.
A big shout out to Malia DeFelice for all the hard work she does for our birding community preparing the San Mateo County Cumulative Year List, a champion eBird reviewer and contributor-THANK YOU MALIA!
