San Fran advice in Birding Trips Posted October 31, 2019 Any local or non local Californians have spots for San Fran area. I know all about ebird, but I am looking for first hand local advice. Need to stay fairly local to San Fran, but will probably be around the area for work during the week between SF-San Jose. Planning to hit Don Edwards NWR and PIER 39 for sea lions. Won't have a whole lot of time to bird so need to make the best of it chasing lifers(knowing there are wildfires in the areas): CA Condor, Ferruginous Hawk, Prairie Falcon, Mtn Quail, Surfbird, Lewis's WP, RB Sapsucker, Tropical or Cassin's Kingbird, YB Magpie, Townsend's Solitaire, California Thrasher, Rufous crowned Sparrow, Bell's Sparrow, Tri-colored Blackbird, Lawerence's Goldfinch Easy targets(i think): LB Curlew, Black Turnstone, Wandering Tattler, Acorn WP, Nuttall's WP Pygmy Nuthatch,GC Sparrow Not much time to plan so any advice certainly appreciated.
