Subject: [SFBirds] Bt Gray Sue Bierman, hooded mergansers mountain lake
A belated report from Saturday where a quick visit to Sue Bierman Park produced a female black-throated Gray warbler, perhaps a continuing bird. Also a Varied Thrush there among good numbers of wintering species. Definitely seemed like lots more birds there we didn’t lay eyes on, so worth more searching.
At Mountain Lake Park the Hooded Merganser number grew to 6 along with 4 Ring-necked ducks. Interestingly pied billed grebe continue to be completely absent from my searches. So strange to me as this breeding species has been a year round fixture there for years.

[IMAGE][IMAGE][IMAGE]Hi Birders,
Birds were everywhere and abundant today in SE SF, including
Hillpoint Park where there were at least 3 subspecies of Fox
sparrows, including Red. This has led me on a late-night quest for
further info, which has further led to varied discoveries,
including an interesting Facebook page where a cascade of Fox
Sparrow photos are posted with many expertly vetted. Fox Sparrows
are full of puzzles and ambiguity, but you feel, as a
non-professional, like you’re cutting into a mystery, digging
deeper into what is, what was and what may be yet again (and
again) thought a species and subspecies. I’m pretty sure about
the Red, but not quite sure about what I nonetheless called a
Slate-colored because it seemed more that than a Sooty—and of
further obscure interest—which was also molting it’s flight
feathers which I’ve not noticed before in any Sooty Fox Sparrow
in SF in December. Apparently very little is known about molt in
Fox Sparrows, and I think I understand a little better why I love
sparrows, especially in nearing winter under a grey drizzling
cloud!

Hi Birders,
Upon highly-valued advice, I’m no longer contending with any dollop of certainty that I saw an altivagans Slate-colored Sparrow yesterday, thus only spotting 2 subspecies, or even species—depending upon who and what one reads. Jump into this puzzle, and you might be destined to be perplexed.

Subject: [SFBirds] Termite Hatch-out
Hi all
Well, it didn't last very long, but the sun this morning following our rainy spell was enough to precipitate a termite hatch-out. I took a noontime stroll down through the Presidio to El Polin and there were thousands of the little winged insects all along the paths and grassy hillsides, being eagerly gobbled up by a whole host of species (Thanksgiving for them, I'm sure, given the soggy conditions over the past week). It's always a bit unnerving to see our usual seed eaters (sparrows and such) chasing down and devouring the little treats, not to mention the odd sight of Kinglets foraging on the ground. 
No rarities, but enjoyable nonetheless. The sight of so many birds on the ground was apparently too much of a temptation for an immature Red-tail, which tried (unsuccessfully) to nab a sparrow, managing only to rough up its rear exiting from the underbrush. Hey, at least it's trying - have to learn to hunt somehow!
Good luck to all as we slog through some more.

Subject: [SFBirds] Belated Report: Lesser black-backed Gull - 10.28.19
A belated report.

I had what now appears to be a third cycle Lesser Black-backed Gull on
Ocean Beach south of the water treatment plant on Friday 10.28.19.
The bird was in the small gull flock and was only present for a few minutes
before everything was flushed.
According to Peter Pyle it appears to be the same bird he found back in the
summer on Ocean Beach and subsequently re-found by David Assman at Crissy.

Golden Gate Audubon Society invites you to take part in the annual San Francisco Christmas Bird Count, on Friday, December 27 — just four weeks away. Please join us.

As a field observer, you'll get to sample the bird life in an area that fits your interests and abilities (all skill levels are welcome), add to our understanding of the status and distribution of our wintering birds, and have fun doing it. Afterward, join the compilation dinner. A rarity or two always turns up; learning about them right away will help you see them, too. The food will be good, and the company will be even better.

Maybe you'd rather just count birds in your yard on December 27. Feeder watchers can spend as much or as little time watching birds as they wish, and their observations also advance our knowledge of winter bird populations. If this interests you, sign up as a feeder watcher -- in the evening you can join others at the compilation dinner if you wish.

Sign up here: SF Christmas Bird Count - Friday December 27, 2019 <https://goldengateaudubon.z2systems.com/np/clients/goldengateaudubon/eventRegistration.jsp?event=4133&>

The sign-up deadline is December 13; space at the compilation dinner is limited, so don't delay.

Questions? Contact the Golden Gate Audubon Society office at <ggas...> <mailto:<ggas...> or (510) 843-2222).

Subject: [SFBirds] Stow Lake
Hi All;

Just for general information.  Stow Lake was named for W. W. Stow, who gave $60,000 for its construction (quite a lot in those days!).  Stowe is a Public School in the UK, there is also a Stowe in Vermont....both might be cold at this time of year, but I think I'd prefer the Stowe in Vermont....English Public Schools having a traditionally unpleasant reputation, some aspects of which I can relate to?

Nevertheless, the birds seem to love Stow Lake, no matter how it is spelled....after all they still keep on coming!

Enjoy your many walks there...I do!

Subject: [SFBirds] Botanical Garden Odds and Ends
Over the past 2 weeks, 2 orange crowned warblers (1 gray hooded and one
not), a Nashville warbler, and a black throated gray warbler have been
sighted 3-5 times in the area bounded by Zellerbach Garden, Succulent
Garden and South Africa. Golden crowned kinglets were in the copper beech
by Zellerbach and the fir trees next to the rosacea circle.

This morning I birded the area and found a wilson's warbler in the
sapsucker tree by Zellerbach (also seen by Melissa & Brad from SF) and a
varied thrush and a tanager (saw only the front of the bird and could not
determine species) at the west end of Moon Viewing Terrace. Nice way to go
into a week of tough weather.

Good birding to all!

Subject: [SFBirds] Battery Godfrey -- Red-footed Booby et al., 11/24/19
I spent this morning @ Battery Godfrey (7:10-10:40 AM) during steady NE winds and clear conditions, joined by Hugh Cotter for the second-half.

At 9:15-9:20, the RED-FOOTED BOOBY made an appearance, flying strong and low over the GG Channel from the west and continuing to fly east until we lost our view of it as it headed below the GG Bridge and into the Bay, presumably to its roost near Crissy Field.

Observations of local interest:

BRANT 1 (on the water out from the bluff)
Green-winged Teal 2 (flying SW low over the GG Channel)
WHITE-WINGED SCOTER 1 (flying W low over the GG Channel)
Surf Scoter 22
Sharp-shinned Hawk 1 ad. & 1 juv. (per Hugh, these birds have been around recently; the juv. landed on a log near the Battery and was vocalizing for several minutes from that perch)
Black Oystercatcher 2
Marbled Godwit 2 (flying E)
Heermann's Gull 5
Mew Gull 200+
Ring-billed Gull 1 ad.
Herring Gull 13
Iceland (Thayer's) Gull 1 ad.
Glaucous-winged Gull 6
Com. Murre 18
RED-NECKED GREBE 1 (on the water out from the bluff)
Clark's Grebe 2
Western Grebe 20+
Red-thr. Loon 120+
Com. Loon 6
Turkey Vulture 2 (1 briefly perched on cypress NE of the Battery)
N. Flicker 6
Peregrine Falcon 2 (perched on S. tower of GG Bridge)
House Wren 2 (calling simultaneously)
Bewick's Wren 1
Wrentit 1-2 (calling from S of the Battery)
Ruby-cr. Kinglet 2
Steller's Jay 1
Am. Pipit 9 (calling flyovers)
Purple Finch 3
Pine Siskin 4
Lesser Goldfinch 1
Am. Goldfinch 1
Yel.-rumped Warbler 20+ (including 1 "Myrtle")
Townsend's Warbler 1

Plus:
Harbor Porpoise 10+

Subject: [SFBirds] Lily Pond Tanagers
This afternoon I took some time to bird the Lily Pond hoping for the Summer
Tanager found by Brian Turner and Rudy Wallen. First, there was a late
WESTERN TANAGER with the robin flock. Later I spotted the continuing SUMMER
TANAGER by itself behind the fenced area on top of the pond. A Red Breasted
Sapsucker was also a nice bird.

Good Birding,
Joachim Gonzalez

Subject: [SFBirds] Battery Godfrey Local Stuff (inc Red-footed)
I reported on Monday watching the Red-footed Booby fly into the Bay from
the mouth of the Golden Gate, but I only saw it briefly as it was already
heading home to the CG Pier. Today I spotted the bird well out toward Mile
Rock, and it spent a good amount of time coursing around the Gate, where I
was finally able to watch it dive on two occasions. Hugh and I took turns
tracking it, and I believe he got some record shots. Around 9:40, it flew
east toward the bridge and we didn't see it again.

Other highlights today included 5-6 Brant on the water, a small flock of
Gadwall, a few Bonaparte's Gulls and some lingering Elegant Terns. On
Monday, I found a single White-winged Scoter in a Surf flock from the
Battery, and on Tuesday, from the Sutro Baths, I saw two close Brant
getting buffeted by the gales, and a female Black Scoter flying alone.

Also on Monday, at Lobos Dunes, I found a flock of 12 Red Crossbills, with
six males sitting out on a dead branch just taking the sun.

Sorry to report, the Common Murre died en route to Wildcare. But, it was a peaceful passing; at least it wasn’t ripped apart by gulls or dogs. The apparent bird-of-the-year was emaciated.

Hi Leslie,
It's wonderful that you and others took the time and got the bird to Wildcare. I'm sure they'll take good care of it.

SF Animal Control (415-554-6364) will pick up injured and orphaned wildlife, but you are at the mercy of their officer availability. If you can safely handle the animal, it's more expedient to bring it to them, or to bring the animal directly to a wildlife rescue group.

We have Wildcare in the North Bay and Peninsula Humane Society's Wildlife department in Burlingame. (There's also the Wildlife Center of Silicon Valley in San Jose.)

It's best to bring the animal to the closest center, because Fish and Game requires them to release the animal back to the same location.

Birders for birds, yay!
Thanks,
Loretta

Subject: [SFBirds] GGAS Field Trip at Fort Mason - Munia, Orchard Oriole etc.
A bright sunny day helped in finding 53 species on today's GGAS walk at Fort Mason.  One of the first birds spotted (before the walk started) was a RED-BREASTED SAPSUCKER - a female - subspecies Daggetti. The highlight of the walk was a SCALY-BREASTED MUNIA hanging out with LESSER GOLDFINCHES on the north side of the garden. A MERLIN showed up several times. Two NORTHERN FLICKERS perched next to each other on a branch in the Battery turned out to be a YELLOW-SHAFTED and an INTERGRADE.  Two VARIED THRUSHES were in the Battery.  The WANDERING TATTLER was on the abandoned pier, accompanied by BLACK TURNSTONES. A LINCOLN'S SPARROW was in the garden. At the end of the walk, we found the continuing ORCHARD ORIOLE.

Subject: [SFBirds] Another Alta Plaza Palm Warbler
Another week, another surprise.
Walking up the east side of Alta Plaza Park shortly before 1 pm today I was idly following a Yellow-rump when another warbler flew in to forage in the small trees. The bobbing tail was a dead giveaway. A returning Palm Warbler? Nope, a different one! This one is considerably paler than last year's but, even without binoculars, the eye line and the bright yellow undertail coverts were quite apparent. Plus there was the almost continuous bob-bob-bob of the tail. It was quite active so it may or may not be readily re-found, but perhaps it will stick around for awhile.
BTW, for any of you Deadheads, there is a really sweet "Supplication" jam in today's 30 Days of Dead offering. Joe-Bob says check it out!
Happy trails,Richard BradusSan Francisco

Subject: Re: [SFBirds] Blackpoll warbler, GGP Alvord Lake
I should add more context before I look in the book and become biased about my observation.

—Looking from the top down, greenish-yellow appearance
—Lighter yellowish wash on the breast, light streaking where wings meet breast
—two wing bars
—Light yellow halo around the eyes
—White in tail feathers stood out during fly catching
—Cross hatching on the back

Damn impeachment testimony and biodiversity event planning had me pinned in this morning.

Good luck!

I’ve only seen two pine warblers in my life and I’ve had trouble with them, so that’s a possibility. When I saw the cross-hatching on the back I went to blackpoll.

I look forward to further insights.

Bob,

A "Blackpoll" would be extremely lay at this time. One going to the ground in November sounds like a possible Pine Warbler as suggested by Curtis Marantz.

Anyone in the area might want to follow up on this report.

Subject: [SFBirds] Fort Mason Local Interest
No new rarities, but there are a couple of interesting continuing birds at Fort Mason.  The male ORCHARD ORIOLE has now almost completely changed color and was active in the garden this morning. A YELLOW-SHAFTED NORTHERN FLICKER is often in the garden and the Battery (there may be two birds), along with an intergrade NORTHERN FLICKER.  The WANDERING TATTLER was on the pier at high tide this morning. I had eight WESTERN MEADOWLARKS on the Great Meadow this morning - this has been a banner year for them at Fort Mason - I've had 111 since the third week of September - last year during the same time period I only spotted 17. 54 species total this morning.

Hi Joe!I corrected the time of the sighting to 4:58. The Booby returned at 4:38. Sorry for the error. I relayed this information to Courtney. I would guess the Heron could fly the mile or two fromthe  lagoon to Chrissy Firld in 5 minutes or so. It’s hard to believe there are 2 different Herons in the same vicinity. Cheers,Mark & Lucas

FWIW, it was still at Rodeo Lagoon around noon today.

I was passing by Alvord Lake with no bins, but the place was jumping and stopped me. Four townsends nearly collided with my chest during bug sorties. I saw a suspicious bird but couldn't nail it down. Went home and wolfed down lunch then returned with bins. Most of the warblers were gone except the slow moving blackpoll that would occasionally go to the ground. Most of the birds were hanging out in what looks like a hawthorn tree with berries near the lake.

Subject: [SFBirds] More Crossbills west SF
I had red crossbills again in two separate spots today in the city including about 15 at 23rd in Geary behind the grocery outlet over street. They seem to have come from a big Monterey Pine tree there. The more deep, throaty calls sounded like the local ones that used to breed in the city. Along with the red-breasted nuthatches, I have to wonder if this winter eruption of crossbills is due to a pine nut failure elsewhere in their range.
A few more Red Crossbills were in the cypress trees right by Kezar Stadium. Enjoyed a close visit from a Townsend’s warbler today in the yard but generally many fewer birds in the yard this winter for me.
Good birding

Subject: [SFBirds] Bernal Heights Northern Goshawk.
Hi Birders,
Took a while to process this, but I saw an adult Northern Goshawk from Alemany Farm at St Mary’s Park today c 12:50 PM. It glided N, fairly low, across highway 280 just E of the farm towards Bernal. Field marks were a large accipiter with a stunning broad white eyestripe, steel-blue (or was it steel-grey?) back and a long folded tail. Looking later at recent ebird sightings, I luckily found that Rajan Rao had already reported a large accipiter at St. Mary’s earlier this morning which then emboldened me to make this otherwise preposterous report. However, I don’t know how anyone could possibly chase this. St. Mary’s Park attracts a lot of birds, including scorned alien oddities like Scaly-breasted Munia. Thanks Rajan for your ebird report!

Hi All

About 20 minutes ago Lucas Stephenson found the Tricolored heron as it flew over headed towards the palace of fine arts, however, we did not see it land. Myself, Cedric Duhalde, Lucas and Mark Stephenson, Pat Mahoney etc saw the bird. It could be at another shoreline hotspot such as Herons head of Yosemite Slough or could have continued into Alameda/San Mateo...

Good Birding

Dave’s reported foray wasn’t too long, as the Red Footed Booby was back in its usual (?) spot as of 8:05 am, preening on the pier to the left of the CG pier.

Thanks all!

Subject: [SFBirds] SF and SEFI Red-footed Boobies appear different
Hi all -

The good open-wing photos of the RFBO by Joe Morlan et al.
<https://ebird.org/checklist/S61313179>https://ebird.org/checklist/S61313179
show that it is molting p5 whereas the SEFI bird
<https://ebird.org/checklist/S61166603>https://ebird.org/checklist/S61166603
Does not show molt and also has a pale tips to the central rectrices
which the SF bird lacks. This indicates different birds.

I'm not sure about age of the SF bird now. The bill lacks blue at the
base, which adults should show, yet the primaries appear to be
showing a "Staffelmauser" pattern, with p1-p4 new, p5 growing, p6 or
p6-p7 old and worn, and p8-p10 quite a bit newer looking, suggesting
a previous molt limit between p7 and p8. If I'm reading this right
then the outer primaries are not juvenile and the pattern including
the older-looking p6-p7 would indicate a bird in at least its 3rd or
4th cycle. Perhaps bill color becomes pinker in molting adults away
from the breeding grounds?

I'll keep working on it...

Cheers, Peter

Judging by the photos on eBird, this Red-footed Booby really appears to be the same individual that’s been seen on the Farallon Islands for the last few weeks.

The SE Farallon team did not record the booby there today - the first day it has gone missing since late October.

That tells me that this bird hasn’t been in the city very long, and may decide to shuttle back and forth.

From: Brian Fitch <fogeggs...>
Subject: Re: [SFBirds] Red-Footed Booby, Crissy Field
The Red-footed Booby is on the old pilings just north of the Coast Guard
Pier, which is at the west end of Crissey Field in the Presidio, and just
south of the Warming Hut. It isn't easy to see from land if its head is
tucked in sleep, and the pier is technically of-limits, but at least it's
not toxic like Hunter's Point. Most observers are entering the pier gate
for excellent viewing.

The bird was reported around 1:40 only on eBird, which shows again why that
platform needs to have headlines or titles to its reports, instead of only
reporter's name, the locale, and numerical values. Quality of sighting is
ignored the way it currently is formatted, which is ridiculous in my humble
opinion.

Thank you Abe Borker, for getting the report into the mainstream.

We’re closing a section of Mason Street at Crissy Field for six months to install culverts beneath.
This will allow fresh water to flow from the Tennessee Hollow Watershed to meet the salt water of
San Francisco Bay, creating a unique marshland at a site known as Quartermaster Reach.

The project will bring an 850-foot length of long-buried stream back to the surface and dramatically
transform an area long covered by asphalt.

Happy Birding,
Leslie

Subject: [SFBirds] Horned Larks, Big Accip, etc.
With three potential city year birds out in the southeastern quadrant of
town, and me needing only one to set a new personal year record, I decided
to head out and try my luck. Before I could leave though, a Red-breasted
Sapsucker popped up in my neighbor's magnolia tree, providing me with my
120th house species.

I stopped by Candlestick first, and walked the fields to see what might be
hiding there. I heard Horned Lark somewhere in the distance, but didn't
see it. Meadowlarks and Savannah Sparrows were the only grass species, but
at one point, I heard some upset ravens and looked up to see two of them
attacking a juvenile accipiter. I was quite surprised to see that the hawk
was the same length as the ravens, and after several nice maneuvers, it
evaded the corvids and flew off toward Hunter's Point. I'll leave it
unnamed because of the distance, but according to a quick reference check,
only one accipiter reaches that size. All I could see was the highly
streaked buffy plumage, and that the partially spread tail showed gradation
(shorter outer rectrices) rather than roundedness like a Coop.

At Yosemite Slough, I heard another Horned Lark flying somewhere, and was
again unable to sight it. I spent some time scanning through the fence
(not enjoying radioactive shoes like some of you!), and eventually heard
and spotted a Horned Lark flying from the restricted area over me and off
to the west.

Despite the record being achieved, I still tried for the White-winged Dove
at Hillpoint Park, but was unsuccessful. Every city year bird from now
until 12/31 is frosting on the cake, and I like frosting.
