Fall Migration 2021

Recommended Posts

The first large group of Elegant terns in SM Co since around July 24th have been roosting in Pillar-Point Harbor.

Early Lesser Scaup, GWTE, and BWTE have been spotted in Nob Hill Pond.

Early Common Goldeneye at San Bruno Point

2 Wilson's Phalaropes at Nob Hill Pond 

Early Yump at Oyster Point 

And assuming Lake Mead and the Farallon's haven't changed since last season they probably have 15 sp of warbler and like 70 code 3s or something idk the Farallons are just wack.

I had my FOS Willow Flycatchers today- 12 of them! Also had my FOS Warbling Vireo as well. The Grosbeaks, Tanagers, and Lazuli Buntings have all been around for about two weeks. The different warblers started showing up a little less than a week ago. So far I've had Yellow, Wilson's, Orange-crowned, and Yellowthroat this fall.

I can’t seem to find one anywhere!! Where did you get yours?

This is extremely embarrassing- I'm pretty sure that most, and probably all, of the birds I have been calling Black Terns are just congregating Common Nighthawks. I just somehow missed the white stripe on the wings.

Will do!

Your neck of the woods is probably like Colorado where they can be found on top of buoys  or on posts in lakes. But, you may not be able to see them with the naked eye. Put the binoculars up or use the zoom on your camera/scope to find them.
