Subject: Battery Godfrey Local Stuff (inc Red-footed)
Date: Thu Nov 21 2019 15:50 pm
From: fogeggs AT gmail.com
 
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

A CLAY-COLORED SPARROW was the surprise bird at Fort Mason this morning. It was foraging by itself south of Building 9 (which is south of the General's House). The ORCHARD ORIOLE continues in the garden, and the WANDERING TATTLER was walking along the shore in Aquatic Park.

A very late migrating WARBLING VIREO was just west of the Community Garden at Fort Mason this morning. The ORCHARD ORIOLE continues. No sign of the Muna. I did hear what sounded like a Blue Gray Gnatcatcher, but never saw it.

Subject: GGAS Field Trip at Fort Mason - Munia, Orchard Oriole etc.
Date: Sun Nov 17 2019 18:40 pm
From: david_assmann=yahoo.com AT groups.io
 
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: Another Alta Plaza Palm Warbler
Date: Sat Nov 16 2019 18:20 pm
From: grizzledjay=yahoo.com AT groups.io
 
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

Hi All,
Yesterday Nov 12 Leora Feeney and I observed from the west corner of Alameda 10 Snow Geese flying northwest towards Yerba Buena Island. The geese were over SF county waters. Also for the first time for Leora and I we saw from Alameda (although they were in SF county waters) 6 adult and 2 young (about half size of adults) Harbor Porpoise in the same area.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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

There is a report on Facebook by Courtney Buechert who said the bird was
still at Rodeo Lagoon between 4:30 pm and 4:45 pm yesterday (Monday). So at
4:38 pm the bird was still in view at Rodeo Lagoon.

However, the time stamps on the SF photos by Lucas and Cedric posted on

Subject: More Crossbills west SF
Date: Tue Nov 12 2019 1:57 am
From: josiah.clark621 AT gmail.com
 
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: Bernal Heights Northern Goshawk.
Date: Mon Nov 11 2019 20:58 pm
From: birdbright AT hotmail.com
 
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!

From: Lucascorneliussen04 AT gmail.com
 
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

Subject: Join the Oakland Christmas Bird Count on December 15
Date: Mon Nov 11 2019 15:07 pm
From: davequady AT att.net
 
Hello, Bay Area Birders:

Golden Gate Audubon Society invites you to take part in the 79th annual Oakland Christmas Bird Count, on Sunday, December 15. Please join us.

As a field observer, you'll get to sample the bird life in an area that fits your interests and abilities, 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 15. 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.

To get started, just click this link

The sign-up deadline is November 29; space at the compilation dinner is limited, so don't dawdle.

Contact me if you have questions about the count; contact the Golden Gate Audubon Society office (510-843-2222) if you have questions about the compilation dinner.

My co-compiler, Bob Lewis, and I hope you'll take part!

Subject: SF and SEFI Red-footed Boobies appear different
Date: Sat Nov 9 2019 20:16 pm
From: ppyle AT birdpop.org
 
Hi all -

The good open-wing photos of the RFBO by Joe Morlan et al.
https://ebird.org/checklist/S6...
show that it is molting p5 whereas the SEFI bird
https://ebird.org/checklist/S6...
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
