Trip Notes

We had an excellent time hanging out with SCVAS Executive Director Bob Power atop Hawk Hill. Weirdest look was a Varied Thrush flying high overhead -- what is that guy doing there? Afterwards we successfully chased the beautiful male Hooded Warbler in Sutro Heights Park, and generally enjoyed the city. Gorgeous day
