Subject: [SFBirds] TV's in the hood
Today there were four Turkey Vultures circling at low altitude over my back
yard on the south slope of Mt Davidson. I've never seen TVs in the area
before. It was somewhat unnerving to watch them hang around so low that I
could see their faces. I almost checked my pulse to make sure I wasn't the
target :)

Subject: [SFBirds] Mount Davidson migrants, Yosemite Slough MEW Gull 8/22/17
There was an interesting mix of migrants/dispersants on Mt. Davidson this morning:

Barn Owl (hatch year bird, flushed repeatedly from trees on east side of hill above the backyards, last seen flying out of sight toward trees on nw side, hopefully it found a safe roost before local red-tail/ravens/crows found it)

Rufous/Allen's Hummingbird 3

Western Wood-pewee 2

Swainson's Thrush

Orange-crowned Warbler 3

Wilson's Warbler 2

Western Tanager 5+ (5 detected simultaneously but there may have been more, appeared to be feeding on native huckleberry which is found within SF county only on Mt. D)

Lazuli Bunting


After work I visited Yosemite Slough Restoration Area (a unit of the Candlestick Park State Recreation Area) with low tide in full effect. (9) Black-necked Stilts were new arrivals, not noted here previously this summer. An adult MEW GULL feeding on the mudflats next to California Gulls was an early arrival. In 2014 an adult was noted at this location on 8/18, which is the earliest record of arriving adult Mew Gull in SF on eBird. When searching the database note that a 2nd cycle Mew Gull noted by m.ob in summer of 2015 (July-August) mostly at Lake Merced but also Ocean Beach was an oversummering bird.

And if I didn't have to work this Saturday I'd be loading up on seasickness meds and ginger snacks and filling one of those four slots on Mr. Alvaro Jaramillo's pelagic adventure. I can't recommend his boat trips enough, best pelagic experience I've ever had in the Bay Area.

Subject: [SFBirds] SF Pelagic this Saturday - 4 spots left.
Hello all,

Lots going on offshore, with our two trips this weekend (Half Moon bay
and Bodega) chock full of birds, and ranging to include essentially all of
the diversity you can see out there this time of year. That is to say,
everything is IN! From South Polar Skuas, to Flesh-footed Shearwater, Laysan
Albatross, and four species of storm petrel, we had a great set of trips.
Our Saturday trip maintained in San Mateo county, so we did not hit the
Pioneer Canyon and areas to the north of there in SF County. Earlier this
month, those areas were very rich in bird and whale life, so we expect that
returning there within SF waters may be good this Sat. I am hoping we can
find some storm petrel numbers, including Wilson's which were common this
last Saturday slightly to the south. Weather forecasts look good for
Saturday, although it is early to know for sure.

We just have a few spots left for this trip, also a Sunday Monterey trip
is scheduled. Most of the trips in September are already sold out.

Good birding,

Alvaro

Subject: Re: [SFBirds] Nazca Booby NOT Seen Yesterday (+ Commentary)
Three experienced birders were out there from 7-8:40 yesterday with no luck
on the rarity, while the two Humpbacks and many flocks of Elegants kept us
company.

Here we have another example of how bizarre birding or any natural
phenomena can be; a subadult Masked Booby appears on 8/12, maybe a first
city or county record, and an adult Nazca Booby appears on 8/19, a definite
first, with both in the Golden Gate Channel, and both first spotted from
boats. No one working from statistical probability could have accepted
this, so it's great to have multiple observers and photos of at least one
of the birds to prove that strikingly improbable events do actually occur
at times. (I'll lay my 2013 Alder Flycatcher on the evidence table again,
just for fun.)

And while I'm at it, please recall my report from June 19th concerning a
possible Parakeet Auklet coming and going from the Golden Gate Channel.
Taking nothing away from Rudy's great find, and based on the 2016 sightings
and photos, I'm submitting that we should be watching early next summer for
this little beauty to return. I'll even add a reminder about my report
from 2014 of a 1st year Parakeet Auklet at Sloat. I hope I'm not the only
person wondering if the sightings from all three years could pertain to the
same individual, one that's possibly formed a site bond with our coast.
Obviously, I'm only theorizing...

Late post to report that I did not see the Nazca Booby from the Warming Hut pier from 9-9:30 am yesterday morning. Consolation prize was at least 2 Humpback Whales inside the gate near Fort Baker. Saw Logan's large flock of Elegant Terns circling above the bridge.


Any other updates on the Booby?

Subject: Re: [SFBirds] NAZCA Booby seen this AM
Hi All,

A brief blurb about the Booby.

A crew of us including Jim Tietz, Zach Mikalonis and myself left for the Farallons early this morning. As we were leaving Sausalito Zach called out a Gannet/Booby flying off the back. I ran over to find a Masked-type Booby flying by and we quickly realized we were dealing with a full adult NAZCA BOOBY and I started contacting local SF birders in hopes some would be able to see the bird. So happy to see others got on it from shore! The first encounter was at 7:09 off Sausalito. The bird then headed towards Crissy (at which point we lost it) but then headed towards Fort Point where we intercepted it again. This was shortly after 7:30. Interestingly, there were two other odd sightings right at the Bridge: a Hoary Bat flying north over the channel and a high-flying, circling flock of 200 Elegant Terns over the toll plaza in the fog. Both firsts for me.

Anyway, pending acceptance by the CBRC, this represents the first Marin county record, San Francisco county record, and Bay Area record as well as the northernmost record anywhere. Hope it comes back for an encore!

Good birding,
Logan

The bird may have flown over my swim buddies who were on a test swim from Fort Point to Aquatic Park at that time. Had they only known what was in the air above them…

Subject: Re: [SFBirds] NAZCA Booby seen this AM
Logan I hope will chime in at some point on this excellent find by him.

Logan texted approx 7.15AM this morning that he had an adult Nazca Booby
from a boat going to the Farallones. The bird was in the SF bay working
between Sausalito and Fort Point in SF, so was in both counties, Marin and
SF.

Paul Saraceni and I arrived at the Coast Guard pier at Crissy Field approx
25-30 minutes later and after 10 minutes of scoping found it circling in
the bay between Angel Island and Crissy and then towards Sausalito.

We moved to the fishing pier near the Warming Hut at Crissy and were able
to get closer looks at the bird as it circled in the bay. Each time did its
long bay loops it edged closer to the Golden Gate bridge until the third
time, just after Alan had arrived, it headed west under the bridge and
gone. This was approx 8.35AM.
We checked the golden gate channel and cliff house subsequently with no
sign.

It was an obvious Masked/ Nazca booby with an orange bill supporting Nazca
over Masked.

Paul got some photos, I believe that Logan also got some; I left my memory
card out of camera so had no luck with getting any.
Paul may provide some additional notes and as I say hopefully Logan will
also follow up.

Subject: [SFBirds] Fort Mason the day after
Although there were some nice birds at Fort Mason this morning, the variety of species was not as great. There were still a number of PACIFIC SLOPE FLYCATCHERS, both on the slope above Aquatic Park and in the Battery. There was an OLIVE-SIDED FLYCATCHER in each place as well. Saw a number of WILSON'S WARBLERS and at least 2 YELLOW WARBLERS (slope and Battery). An ORANGE-CROWNED WARBLER was in the garden. A WARBLING VIREO was in the Battery. A pair of NUTTALL'S WOODPECKERS and a pair of DOWNY WOODPECKERS were in the Battery as well. There were two WANDERING TATTLERS on the abandoned pier.

Subject: [SFBirds] Fort Mason - Flycatchers!
Started birding at Fort Mason in the Community Garden, which had a bright YELLOW WARBLER in the eastern half of the garden. It was quite windy, so I headed over to the sheltered area around Aquatic Park, where I almost immediately heard a HAMMOND'S FLYCATCHER singing its "sweep-tseep-seep" song. It repeated it at least eight times, but I wasn't able to see the bird. A WESTERN WOOD-PEWEE was sitting on top of a snag, and it continued flycatching there for at least the next three hours (at one point it was chased by a second WESTERN WOOD PEWEE). A BLUE-GRAY GNATCATCHER was in the center dead tree, and a number of WILSON'S WARBLERS were all over the hillside (as many as eight during the morning). Two YELLOW WARBLERS were seen during the morning. A WILLOW FLYCATCHER showed up around 9, and was quite active for at least an hour on the hillside. Two PACIFIC-SLOPE FLYCATCHERS were also working the hillside, and an OLIVE-SIDED FLYCATCHER came in as well. A HOUSE WREN flew in and chased a WILSON'S WARBLER around one of the dead trees. Bob Gunderson spotted a BLACK AND WHITE WARBLER (presumably the continuing bird), but we were only able to observe it for about 15 seconds before it disappeared (it had been bathing in the water on the path in the closed off area). A little later in the morning a WESTERN TANAGER, 2 HOODED ORIOLES and a BULLOCK'S ORIOLE moved through. An amazing morning for birds. The wind was shifting, which probably helped - we noticed that the wind was coming from the east around the time that the tanagers and orioles were coming through. The goats have removed much of the vegetation on the hillside, and their continuing grazing seems to stir up a lot of insects, which is great for flycatchers. At about eleven we headed back up to the garden, where there were no obvious migrants, although it was nice to see a very bright male AMERICAN GOLDFINCH.

This morning I sea-watched from the Cliff House terrace from 7:20-8:20. Winds were steady from the W and visibility improved during the hour.

Highlight was 500+ SOOTY SHEARWATERS, most in several pulses moving SW relatively close-in beyond the rocks. Other observers have seen 1000-5000 Sooties from this location in the past week.

Other observations of local interest:
Red-necked Phalarope 1 (flying S over ocean)
PARASITIC JAEGER 1 subad. (chasing Elegant Tern nearshore)
Com. Murre 20+ (including several young on the water)
Pigeon Guillemot 7

Four BULLOCK'S ORIOLES moved through early in the morning followed by three HOODED ORIOLES mid-morning. A WESTERN WOOD-PEWEE showed up early as well. There were at least four WILSON'S WARBLERS zipping around. The garden held mostly resident birds first thing in the morning, with the only exception being one WILSON'S WARBLER. Later in the morning a nice male BLACK-HEADED GROSBEAK showed up.

Subject: [SFBirds] Cook's Petrel?
Today on a trip from Pillar Point to the Farallones I saw abird that I believe was a Cooks Petrel. I was watching a Sooty Shearwater whena pale tubenose flew in front of the sooty. The bird was clearly smaller thanthe sooty shearwater. It flew into a sharp high bounding arch that was tighterand faster than the sooty. Overall the dorsal side of bird was gray with a dark“M” going from the primaries across the back and it had a short dark tail. Ionly saw it for one arc about two seconds before I lost it due to swell and abouncing boat. We were still inshore of the Farallones (10 miles?) no one elsesaw the bird. At the islands we had great looks at the Blue footed Boobybut couldn’t find the others. Numerous Puffins and thousands of Cassin’s Auklets.At the shelf we had 12+ Black-footed Albatross, . many Pink-foot and SootyShearwaters. We had a few Ashy Storm petrels in SF County but had 5 or moreWilson’s Storm Petrels in San Mateo County in with a few Ashys. Outstandingwhale action with Humpback, Blue and Gray. White-sided Dolphin and HarborPorpoise.Alan Hopkins

Subject: [SFBirds] continuing Black & White Warber, Fort Mason
Hello,
Black & White Warber continues at Fort Mason, saw it about 1:00 pm. It was
on North east side facing Aquatic Cove (before crossing street), in an
Alder or Sycamore tree, then flew to a pine that was right beside it. A few
minutes later it flew to a tree that is near the stairs (by gated chain
link fence) leading back up to the battery.

It continued to forage in the trees above the stairs, then made it way to
trees on both sides of the walking path. It flew above me & was a eye
level; it sang several times.

Thank you to Calvin Lee who spotted it yesterday, & to David Assmann for
posting it.

There were also two Great Blue Herons, one Night Heron, one Cooper's Hawk.
Tree Ann's Hummingbirds, one Ca. Towhee, two White-crowned Sparrows, one
Wilson's Warbler, one Common Yellow-throat, eight House Finches,eight
Red-masked Parakeets, & three Black Phoebes.

Fort Mason Pavillion - There were nine Pigeon Guillemonts, number of Brown
Pelicans, six California Gulls & three juveniles.

Subject: [SFBirds] Yosemite Slough BAIRD'S Sandpiper 8/8/17 + misc. other sightings
Greetings SFBirders,

This afternoon/evening there was a hatch year BAIRD'S SANDPIPER at the Yosemite Slough Restoration Area. It was associating with two HY Westerns, and after flushing, returned to the smaller/southern of two freshwater ponds fed by groundwater on the east side of the cyclone fence separating the publicly accessible (sort of, read on for more details on that) site from the clean up site to the east. It was still there when I left around 20:15.

Due to construction taking place here during daylight hours (or perhaps other reasons) the gate to the Slough Restoration at the junction of Hawes/Griffith has been locked. However parking at the end of Van Dyke one can walk through big gaps in the fencing to access the site. Low tide is typically most productive. Other birds of note were a Red-necked Phalarope that flew in and later took off and (6) first arrival Western Sandpipers. A full list from this afternoon's effort is here:

http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S38552589

Yesterday, before and while conducting beginning Field Ornithology lessons with the TREE FROG TREKS summer camp in Golden Gate Park I had a couple of interesting sightings for Stow Lake: a migrant Blue-gray Gnatcatcher was in the scrub/oak hillside above the reservoir on Strawberry Hill in the morning, and around 12:30 a NORTHERN HARRIER flew over heading west. The now apparently resident Hooded Merganser was hanging around on the west side of the lake between the pavilion and historic footbridge. As many as (4) juvenile Great Blue Herons as well as fledged but still beginning Red-tailed Hawk and Great Horned owl provided added excitement for budding birders ages 5-12.

Sunset District birdwatchers looking for an after school/work project are encouraged to keep tabs on the Black-bellied Plover roost atop Sunset Reservoir, most easily viewed from 24th Avenue between Pacheco and Ortega, unless it's sunny in the afternoon in which case approaching from 28th will provide a less glaring experience. Yesterday I noted the first (39) Black-bellied Plovers had returned.

If you or your kids, or your grandmother or anyone else you know is looking for pointers on how to sharpen their field skills, message me off list.

See you out there,

A small tree behind the fence on the steps leading down to Aquatic Park was the migrant hotspot at Fort Mason this morning. Five WILSON'S WARBLERS and a PACIFIC-SLOPE FLYCATCHER were easily viewed; not so easily seen were an empid with a completely round eye ring, and another empid without a discernible eye ring that was pumping its tail straight up and down. A WESTERN KINGBIRD flew over without stopping. At Crissy Lagoon, I was surprised by a small flock of seven AMERICAN AVOCETS flying along the bay shore. El Polin Spring had at least four WILSON'S WARBLERS, a SWAINSON'S THRUSH and a PACIFIC-SLOPE FLYCATCHER. Lots of hunting COOPER'S HAWKS hunting this morning - three at Fort Mason (the adult pair and the one young), and a young one at El Polin.

Hi Birders,
Acting as the messenger here. Christian Schwarz reports that a Shearwater Journeys pelagic trip just had a subadult Masked Booby (yes, they believe Masked rather than Nazca) in flight "straight out west from the auklet spot", aka Land's End. The bird was close enough to land that it could potentially be seen by land-based observers if it continued inshore on its last known flight path.
Birders looking for the Parakeet Auklet, or seawatching at Sutro Baths today should keep an eye out for this bird. Who knows, maybe it will take a seat on Mile Rock or Seal Rocks at some point.
Good luck!

Parakeet Auklet was reported "on Hermit Rock" this morning (8/5/17) as of 8:30.

If you use eBird and want to provide accurate data to that database, we are now in the period where Selasphorus hummingbirds should be reported as Rufous/Allen's unless you have an obvious adult male (very unlikely by August.)

That's all for now.

Many photos taken of petite oriole(s) that David alluded to if needed. Our conclusion was just a very young bird (still had a little fluff behind the head) with tail feathers still growing in? List below with some images:

Also had a straight billed small oriole with a short tail that could have been an Orchard Oriole and a quick glimpse of what might have been a Black-Throated Gray Warbler.

Subject: [SFBirds] Parakeet Auklet 11:00am thru 12:30pm
Today at approx. 9:30am Chris and I arrived at the Hermit Rock overlook for our 2nd attempt at the Parakeet Auklet. As we arrived a birder who was heading out told us the bird had been seen just 10 minutes prior and on and off since around 8:00am. We set up at the vista area with the company of other birders. At approx. 11:00am another birder called out that the auklet had suddenly appeared on Hermit Rock. It was right by the crack in the rock right where the dandelion(?) is growing out from the rock. It slowly started to work it's way up the face and eventually ended up on top of the rock where It was chased off by a Black Oystercatcher. It was visible on Hermit Rock for a good 20 minutes. It then flew right and landed on the cliff right under the Labyrinth. We hiked the trail and went down on the beach where we watched and photographed it from the beach below. I would say it was there for another 15 minutes or so. At one point a gull flew near it and it ducked in a crevice on the cliff, but then popped back out in full view for a few minutes. The auklet then flew off the cliff out over the water. From our viewing angle on the beach it was hard to determine what direction it went. We hiked back to the Hermit Rock overlook where birders were gathered and scoped for it a bit more but did not refind it. We left at approx. 1:00pm

Subject: [SFBirds] Re: Seeking ID Assistance with a Finch
Thank you all for your feedback. Going by human response, it's a house finch. An unusually colored one for me, which is all the reason to stick to one principles and look at shape and bill first. Motorola smart phone auto-correct is voting for a house bench, but it also thinks that western gals are breeding in the bay.

This morning in Lafayette Park I chased around this bird that was hanging out with house finches. Its white belly and general lack of striping is what stood out to me. After reviewing pictures I concluded it was an oddly colored house finch. Then I couldn't leave enough alone and reverted to my old habit of flipping through my guides in search of something interesting. On further review I think the side view of its head might show a little bit of brow and malar striping. I have other pictures -- unfortunately mostly of its butt. Any help is greatly appreciated. I'm not great with my finches.

Hi Thomas, Park at the USS SF Memorial (see map), go down the stairs to the
coastal trail until you can see Hermit Rock. There are maybe two spots to
see it from. The latest news has people going down near the labyrinth or on
the beach and spotting on the cliffs below the labyrinth.

*This is from the list archives. *
Best seen from the Coastal Trail, most easily reached by parking in the USS
San Francisco Memorial parking lot (https://goo.gl/maps/urhc1tHhqwD2),
going down a short set of steep stairs to the trail, and then traveling in
a northerly direction until Hermit Rock is visible through a break in the
trees, located here https://www.google.com/maps/place/37%C2%B047'08.7%

but I would like to ask for some specifics for where to drive, park, walk,

4 to 5 Western Tanagers were feeding in Buena Vista this morning. One adult male still with breeding plumage was getting mouthfuls of insects from under the bark of an ironwood tree.

A couple Black-headed Grosbeaks were in the same area, and a female or juvenile oriole made a quick flyby through the blackberry bushes.

Lots of fledglings, including towhees juncos, house finches, Robins.

A very early BLUE-GRAY GNATCATCHER was on the east side of the Fort Mason Community Garden this morning - about two weeks earlier than I've ever seen one in August. A WILSON'S WARBLER was also in the garden, but I suspect this is the same individual I was seeing last week. An ORANGE-CROWNED WARBLER was in the Battery. At the Fort Scott Community Garden I had a PACIFIC-SLOPE FLYCATCHER.

The PARAKEET AUKLET was visible this morning between 8:30 and 9:15 AM on Hermit Rock at Lands End, and the nearby mussel-covered rocks. It then moved onto the cliff below the labyrinth (Mile Rock overlook). From the beach, looking up toward the rock structure, the Parakeet Auklet was visible and easily photographed. We left the bird there around 10:00 AM.

Subject: [SFBirds] Recent observations
7/28/17 -

After a morning visit to the Exploratorium at Pier 15, I hiked the ~ 18000 meters home via Fort Mason and the Presidio in a leisurely 7 hours.

As mentioned recently by others, dispersal/migration is on for songbirds. Orange-crowned Warblers were at East Black Point (Fort Mason) West Bluff (Presidio) and Coastal Bluffs (2, Presidio.)

Next to building 937 at the base of West Bluff I heard several "sweet" wood warbler chip notes. To my West Coast ears it sounded like a Yellow Warbler but so do
American Redstarts.

Along the Coastal Bluffs I was happy to note at least (3) WRENTITS (a San Francisco Species of Special Concern, at least to me as it is only known to nest in that location with sporadic records from Lake Merced the past couple of years and now apparently extirpated from Glen Canyon and Bayview Hill) and a hatch year Spotted Towhee. A Wandering Tattler was on Flat Rock off Marshall Beach.

Walking through West Golden Gate Park
at dusk I had two groups (15-20 each) of Whimbrels flying over heading inland seen from along Chain of Lakes Drive.

7/27-

I was intrigued that evening to hear a VIRGINIA Rail calling several times (unprompted by me) from tule/willow freshwater Marsh habitat along the southwest edge of South Lake Merced, near the location of the now shuttered Pacific Rod & Gun club.

Do any of the long time observers for San Francisco recall previous July records? Does anyone know of any breeding efforts this summer in nearby San Mateo and Marin counties and whether those birds have already dispersed? This would be a very early date for a migrant to the coast, earliest date I know of is August 9th (Ron Thorn)

There were also at least (4) BANK Swallows around, lingering birds from the colony, 1200 meters to the west of there.

Earlier, in the afternoon, at Yosemite Slough Restoration Area, a unit of the Candlestick Park State Recreation Area, (2) fly by Northern Rough-winged Swallows were suspected diurnal migrants flying by in the suddenly intensifying west wind that broke the heat spell. In (6) previous afternoon visits to this site I had (0) detections of Rough-winged Swallows. A hatch year Cooper's Hawk was the first one I've seen the city this summer away from known nest sites.

The morning of 7/27, a brief stop in West Golden Gate Park (Middle Lake), there was a vocal Pacific-slope Flycatcher.Pacific-slope Flycatcher has been noted summering in this part of the park for three consecutive years and this year a nest was found in the east part of GGP (first Arboretum breeding record, succulent garden R. Cullison and m.ob) but there is still only a handful of confirmed records in all for the city.

7/25 - (1340) European Starlings staging for the evening flight to roost were notable at South Lake Merced for the sheer biomass. The only other opportunity SF observers have at seeing this many land birds in one spot comes from peak migrant flights at Battery Godfrey and these are rare events that may occur only 1-2 times per year, some years not at all.

A note to eBird users, when you enter a record that is flagged as a high count, do your local reviewers a favor and add a brief note in the comments at how you arrived at the figure ("counted by 5s as they flew by/northbound birds only" OR "photographed and counted on my big screen when I got home" OR whatever the case may be)

Thank you,

Dominik Mosur

At 5:07 the Parakeet Auklet flew out of a crevice on Hermit Rock. It flew to the smaller square rock just to the west and spent the next 10 minutes on that rock and in the water when the Oyster Catcher chased it. I lost it after that.

The bird flew from the back side of Hermit Rock into the water for about
one minute, then returned to a perch out of view on the back side again,
where it currently stays.

Subject: [SFBirds] Parakeet Auklet at Mile Rock overlook
Folks,
.
The PARAKEET AUKLET was visible this morning between 8:30 and 9:15 AM on Hermit Rock at Lands End, and the nearby mussel-covered rocks. It then moved onto the cliff below the labyrinth (Mile Rock overlook). From the beach, looking up toward the rock structure, the Parakeet Auklet was visible and easily photographed. We left the bird there around 10:00 AM.

After spending a few minutes visible on the front side of Hermit Rock, the
Parakeet Auklet walked through the large crack and disappeared again. It
can move from the back to the front without needing to fly, and it did so
very surreptitiously, almost missed except for one keen-eyed birder.

I finally got this life bird after SIX tries! Good luck to others still
hoping to see it.

Hey Mike,
Today (July 27), I found two NORTHERN FLICKERS at Harking Park. They were very likely the two you saw the other day. Was able to get some good photographs. Please see my ebird report,http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S38349951
or my Flickr page,https://www.flickr.com/photos/lhchang/with/36076249391/
The young, female bird was still asking for food. But, during my five minute observation, she was not fed by the adult female. Don't know if the young bird was born here or a migrant.
Good birding, Lee Chang SF

Apologies for late post... about 2 wks ago, I was golfing on Fleming Golf Course in Harding Park when I saw two NORTHER FLICKERS on a snag, one feeding the other while the other flitted its wings.  I'm used to seeing young birds do that when begging for food.  Could this have been a recently fledged bird?

Separately today, I saw a pair of adult PIED-BILLED GREBES with 4 juveniles.  Almost fully grown but still with zebra stripes while both parents pulled up 2 bright red crawfish simultaneously.  Impressive to see 4 healthy young birds on such a small patch!

Hi Ralph,

when it was on Hermit it was typically on the S x SE face or landward
side. It may or may not still frequent its ledge where it was first
spotted which is, looking straight down, at about 12:30 and 1/3 of the way
from the top (not visible from land except at low tide). Later reports have
it wandering between there and the labyrinth

Hello,
This morning at 8:35 am the Parakeet Auklet continued; it was on Hermit
Rock sat in the center crevice poking its head into the crevice where
Pigeon Gillemots roost.

Curtis M. had seen it from above at the second look out where it has been
seen by others. Mark Lin saw Curtis on the beach headed towards Hermit
Rock; Mark & I followed later joined by Bruce B. & Jim. Parakeet Auklet was
10 feet above us on Hermit Rock, we had great close views of it. Thanks to
Curtis who spotted him & had PA AU in his scope.

PA AU sat at the center crevice for 6 min. until it was mobbed by a Pigeon
Guillemot; it flew east toward the labyrinth. It returned about 30 min.
later to Hermit Rock much lower, siting on the lower left side of the rock
for 2 min. then it flew west where we lost sight of it.

Thank you to Rudy Wallen, who found the PA AU on July 16th.

  Paget and I looked for the Hermit Rock Parakeet Auklet between 7 and 9 this morning and it had not been seen by any birders.

Unfortunately  we discovered that our car had been broken into when we returned to the USS San Francisco Memorial Parking lot where it was parked out in the open. We reported it to the GGNR police who told us that there have been a few break ins there. The biggest lost besides the hassle was a modestly priced point and shoot camera that was in the trunk. We hadn't left anything visible in the front of the car. They went through the glove compartment and didn't find anything they considered worth taking other than a hand sanitiser.

Hope you have better luck than we did looking for the bird.

Paget and I looked for the Hermit Rock Parakeet Auklet between 7 and 9 this morning and it had not been seen by any birders.

Unfortunately we discovered that our car had been broken into when we returned to the USS San Francisco Memorial Parking lot where it was parked out in the open. We reported it to the GGNR police who told us that there have been a few break ins there. The biggest lost besides the hassle was a modestly priced point and shoot camera that was in the trunk. We hadn't left anything visible in the front of the car. They went through the glove compartment and didn't find anything they considered worth taking other than a hand sanitiser.

Hope you have better luck than we did looking for the bird.

Bill and Paget Lenarz

I made my fourth try for the Parakeet Auklet after work this evening from
5:30-7:30 and had no luck. There was only one other birder present. I guess
most others have either given up or already seen the bird.

Subject: [SFBirds] Red Knots Ocean Beach
This afternoon there were either 2 or 4 Red Knots in with the other shorebirds near Pecheco St. I walked from Pecheco north to about Kirkham St. I saw two Knots twice, they were easly flushed by dogs and runners so I am not sure if they were the same birds. There were also 300+ Whimbrels, 70 Marbled Godwits, 60 Sanderling s, 11 Snowy Plovers, 1 Black-bellied Plover and 1 Long-billed Curlew. Also 1 Osprey, 320 Heermann's Gulls (8 juv's) 180 Elegant Terns, 5 Caspian Terns, 50 Western Gulls and 12 California Gulls. Offshore there were maybe 2000 Brandt's Cormorants and some nice feeding flocks happening but the light was bad so I didn't check too closley for other birds.

Subject: [SFBirds] Local Interest - dispersing birds
An OLIVE-SIDED FLYCATCHER was calling behind the Fort Scott Community Garden this morning. El Polin also had a few interesting birds - right above the spring a BEWICK'S WREN and a HUTTON'S VIREO were preening in the same tree and a RED-BREASTED NUTHATCH was giving its yank call on the hillside.

I was just queried about the location of the PAAU and looking at google/maps I realize I have the rock names wrong.  The bird was seen on LOBOS ROCK which is about 150 meters further offshore than Hermit Rock.  It flew to the far side of Hermit Rock which is just offshore at high tide anyway.

Subject: [SFBirds] Flicker Breeding Behavior in Harding Park
Apologies for late post... about 2 wks ago, I was golfing on Fleming Golf Course in Harding Park when I saw two NORTHER FLICKERS on a snag, one feeding the other while the other flitted its wings. I'm used to seeing young birds do that when begging for food. Could this have been a recently fledged bird?

Separately today, I saw a pair of adult PIED-BILLED GREBES with 4 juveniles. Almost fully grown but still with zebra stripes while both parents pulled up 2 bright red crawfish simultaneously. Impressive to see 4 healthy young birds on such a small patch!

No sign of the Parakeet Auklet this morning between 8 am and 2 pm. Good luck to whoever is trying for it tomorrow.

Subject: [SFBirds] Fall already? (Warbling Vireo at Lafayette Park)
Hi all,Well, not migration just yet, but apparently some dispersal going on.
Here I am, dutifully noting the breeding birds and their offspring - at Lafayette Park one fledged Red-tailed Hawk (and one demise), two Acorn Woodpeckers, two Black Phoebes (earlier), a Song Sparrow, possible Hooded Oriole (after an initial nest failure), multiple Violet-green Swallows, "Oregon" Juncos and Pygmy Nuthatches plus a slew of Robins, Brewer's Blackbirds, House Sparrows and some House Finches. So I was totally surprised to find a nice, bright Warbling Vireo pop up and glean for a bit in the small trees near the condo. bldg. late this morning. It stayed silent, unlike the Nuttal's Woodpecker that I had been chasing and that Lori Lee documented well in her eBird checklist from this morning, noting the full reddish crown indicating that it is a juvenile. So I think both birds are this year's models, likely dispersing from their breeding spots and making their first forays into the great unknown.
A reminder that the cycles are progressing and that many more interesting newbies will be visiting soon.
