There is a pair of Blue-winged Teal at Lily Pond, east GGP right now. Maybe the same bird reported from McLaren the other day?

Cheers,

Subject: Y-b Sapsucker
Date: Thu May 13 2021 14:47 pm
From: fogeggs AT gmail.com
 
We had been hoping for the unlikely event of having the Corona Heights
sapsucker drop down the hill and visit our house, but we haven’t seen it up
there for many weeks now.

But instead of the winter resident male, we just watched an adult female
Yellow-bellied Sapsucker explore several of our neighbor’s trees before
flying off to the north.

Second of the season, and first for the home list, # 128.

Subject: Auklets
Date: Wed May 12 2021 22:15 pm
From: fogeggs AT gmail.com
 
This morning at the Sutro Baths, a Rhinoceros Auklet flew off to the south
from near North Rock, and then returned (or another did) an hour later. No
sign of migration other than a wandering Forster's Tern and a few loons.

And I just read on the junior reporting line that John Faccini found the
Parakeet Auklet returning to its haunts at Hermit Rock, Land's End

Subject: Sequoia Audubon May 13 Monthly Meeting
Date: Wed May 12 2021 15:28 pm
From: office AT sequoia-audubon.org
 
Upcoming Monthly Meeting, Thurs. May 13
Community Science: Long-Term Lessons: Perspectives from Three Years of Mushroom Monitoring in the Santa Cruz Mountains
Christian Schwartz, Research Associate at the Norris Center for Natural History (UCSC) and the Santa Barbara Botanical Garden, co-author of Mushrooms of the Redwood Coast
Mushroom hunters enjoy traveling far and wide, bouncing from place to place and following the rains to stay with the season. But what happens when we focus on revisiting the same small areas whether there has been rain or not? And what if one takes it a step further, and rather than just harvesting chanterelles or photographing the flashiest species, takes the time to pay attention to everything, counting individual fruitbodies and keeping track of changes from year to year? Christian has been undertaking just such an effort for the past three years, supported by a grant from the Save the Redwoods League – and this year, some of his survey transects were burned in the CZU Fire. Join us to hear what discoveries, lessons, and patterns have emerged from this ambitious project.

Subject: Bernal Hill Today
Date: Tue May 11 2021 2:30 am
From: eg40monson AT gmail.com
 
Hi everybody,
Today as noted by others was a large push in the city. Bernal this morning
while not having anything "rare" had some nice movement. Warbling Vireos
were more numerous than I have ever seen with 8, Tanagers seemed in every
tree with migrants, at least 2 Olive-sided were around as well as 2
Ash-throats, many grosbeaks, and a immature Bullock's Oriole (quite
uncommon up here). Finally the Lawrence's Goldfinches were tinkling on the
south side.
This afternoon I went up with Rajan Rao in hopes of getting him his hill
bird Lawrence's. Some highlights from that were the juvenile Swainson's
Hawk that interestingly made 2 passes by the hill before continuing north,
we received great views of the female and male Lawrences flying right over
us and witnessed them land twice, a female Laz was near the top of
anderson, and the large flycatchers from the morning continued.
Other than migrants it was nice to see hatched bushtits and juncos. Signs
of successful breeding!
A great day of migration and hopefully more to come!
Eddie

Subject: East Wash Migrants
Date: Mon May 10 2021 18:59 pm
From: fogeggs AT gmail.com
 
I checked a number of sites this morning; Battery Godfrey, Ft Scott, the
East Wash, and the plateau west of the Legion, with only the wash having
anything much, which was surprising because so much was there.

An hour spent in the overgrown middle section brought me sight or sound of
3 Olive-sided Flycatchers, Western Wood-Pewee, Pac-slope Flycatcher, 4
Western Kingbirds, a minimum of 15 Warbling Vireos (8 in view at once),
Red-breasted Nuthatch, Swainson's Thrush in both olive and russet versions,
Orange-crowned, Yellow, Black-throated Gray, 2 Townsend's, 3 Hermit, 2
Wilson's Warblers, 3 Western Tanagers, 2 Hooded Orioles, and 4 Lazuli
Buntings. Ft Scott had a Turkey Vulture, a flock of 7 Band-taileds, and a
single kingbird over an equal amount of time, and I left as the westerlies
began to kick up again.

A male white-winged scoter was with the surf scoter raft around Mile Rock, seen off the Land’s End trail today.

A couple of Wandering Tattlers remain cooperative seen from the parapet of the now shuttered Cliff House.

To echo Hugh’s remarks, there have been very few migrants noted on Corona Hill this spring including some unusually late first arrivals.

Happy Mother’s Day,

Date: Mon May 10 2021 4:12 am
From: chatwren AT gmail.com
 
It seems like migrants have been very hard to come by at Lake Merced this
spring so far; this weekend finally saw a few coming through including:
Western Tanager, Warbling Vireo and Ash-throated Flycatcher yesterday 5/8
and Olive-sided Flycatcher and Swainson's Thrush today- 5/9.

An Aleutian Cackling goose continues as does the Bonaparte's Gull found I
believe by Rachel earlier this week. Other interesting birds have included
two Green-winged Teal, Hooded Orioles, Bank Swallows, a Surf Scoter,
Red-necked Phalaropes and a continuing Ring-necked Duck.

Subject: SF this week
Date: Sat May 8 2021 21:41 pm
From: eg40monson AT gmail.com
 
Hi all,
This past week I have been birding Bernal as usual. Today I did a quick
look around other spots on the east side of the city and saw a few migrants
although no major push was occuring. Here are some of the interesting
sightings from the week (including today).
-Broad-winged Hawk (Adult flew by my house on Monday)
-Lawrence's Goldfinch (I witnessed an adult male on Wednesday followed up
by 2 seen on Friday by David Armstrong)
-Golden Eagle (A second year flew over my house on Friday)
-Acorn Woodpecker (Flyby on Tuesday)
-Ash-throated Flycatcher (My FOS in the city today on Bernal. Seemingly
sparse in the city so far this year?)
I am definitely seeing diversity but really a lack of numbers. Tanagers and
grosbeaks seem to come in one's and two's. Warblers seem almost
non-existent most days and raptors up to now have also been slow. It will
be interesting to see how this year plays out and whether it is just a very
late year or something else.
Eddie

Subject: Global Big Day/Christmas in May Tomorrow and Blue Grosbeak continues

From: david_assmann=yahoo.com AT groups.io
 
Even if you are not participating in Golden Gate Audubon's Christmas in May, you can help contribute towards Global Big Day tomorrow by going to your favorite birding spot.  Last May 141 species were found in San Francisco on Global Big Day. Although I did not see the Blue Grosbeak at Fort Mason today, at least one other birder did see it.

Subject: Around town this morning
Date: Fri May 7 2021 20:51 pm
From: darmstrong99=yahoo.com AT groups.io
 
I took advantage of the great weather and hit a number of spots this morning. I first worked the early shift at Mt. Davidson which had a grand total of 3 migrants - 1 male Hermit Warbler, 1 Lazuli Bunting and 1 Western Tanager. From there I went across town to Portero Hill Rec Center where there were at least 4 flycatcher species including what would be a very early Willow (obvious empid, well seen from below and at close to eye level - overall brownish above, pale with some yellowish wash on the underparts, orange lower mandible, no eye ring, 2 brownish wingbars etc.). Also a late Pine Siskin calling and another Western Tanager.
The Lawrence's Goldfinches that I reported already were briefly seen together on the hillside above Folsom Street near its intersection with Bernal Heights Blvd. They perched up obligingly for a minute or so then flew off up the hill. The other interesting bird was a Western Kingbird seen on the south side of the hill opposite the top of the Prentiss stairs on Bernal Heights Blvd. I also heard Western Tanager while I was there.
Finally I walked Glen Canyon Park which has been quiet so far this spring but I did have 2 more Pine Siskins, a singing Purple Finch, 2 singing Black-headed Grosbeaks, another Western Tanager and a singing Warbling Vireo in the upper part of the canyon.
David

Hi all - in my haste to report this I mistakenly said east rather than north hillside (Folsom St. bends around). the spot is very close to where Folsom ends and Bernal Heights Blvd. begins
37°44'35.5"N 122°24'38.7"W

Good luck if you chase them

Willow Flycatcher continues at the Potrero Hill Rec Center, currently in the eucs just meters south of the cement stairs/beginning of wood path. Silent. 
Larry Goldfinch pair heard and barely seen at Bernal. They flew south up the hill from Folsom entrance and maybe a bit west. The call notes sounded like "shwing:" fast double notes and a bzzzz. I did not see or hear the gnatcatcher.

Subject: May 15 pelagic? Flycatchers, ID techniques and Seabirds workshops coming up.
Date: Fri May 7 2021 15:46 pm
From: chucao AT coastside.net
 
Hello all,

Our May 22 pelagic is sold out, but there is a possibility to add
another date on the 15th. Two different Short-tailed Albatross were reported
on research boats last week, one off Santa Cruz, one off San Mateo, that
would be a find for sure. If you are interested on a 15th trip, let me know
(reply to me directly) and we can see if we get enough people. Boats are
restricted to about 2/3 capacity at this point. Pricing will be $170.

Next week I start a flycatcher ID workshop (4 classes), while later on
in the month SFBBO is hosting an Bird Identification techniques workshop I
will teach, and finally in June I have a seabirds workshop lined up. Details
and how to register can be found here:

Subject: Fort Mason Last Two Days - Blue Grosbeak, Yellow-Headed Blackbirds and expected migrants
Date: Thu May 6 2021 20:40 pm
From: david_assmann=yahoo.com AT groups.io
 
It's been a busy two mornings at Fort Mason.  Yesterday, in addition to the three YELLOW-HEADED BLACKBIRDS that flew into the garden a little after eight, a number of other migrants moved through, including at least three WARBLING VIREOS, a BLUE-GRAY GNATCATCHER, a BULLOCK'S ORIOLE, a COMMON YELLOWTHROAT, and 4 WESTERN TANAGERS. Today, in addition to the BLUE GROSBEAK that showed up in the garden, at least 3 WESTERN KINGBIRDS (possibly 5 - saw 2 at two different times) flew through, and a WESTERN TANAGER was near the garden. There were at least 4 HOODED ORIOLES in the garden. Wintering birds are mostly gone - saw only 2 YELLOW-RUMPED WARBLERS and 1 GOLDEN-CROWNED SPARROW.

Subject: Possible golden plover

Just saw a golden plover, I think, on beach below fenced off bank swallow nesting area across from oceanside water treatment plant. But, was chased off by dogs and flying further south. Hopeful, it would be still around this area.
