Fort Mason (SF)

May 8 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am

The focus of the May field trip will be looking for late migrants.  May can bring a surprise migrant, and there should still be migrating flycatchers, vireos and warblers moving through. In previous years, we have had a Western Wood Pewee, a Western Tanager and a Black Headed Grosbeak. Nesting birds could include Pigeon Guillemots, Downy Woodpeckers and Hooded Orioles. We’ll also check out the Black Point Battery for flycatchers and warblers, and scan Aquatic Park for water birds.  This walk has been moved to the second Sunday – May 8th, so there is no conflict with Bay to Breakers (which is on the 3rd Sunday).

Leader: David Assmann, david_assmann@yahoo.com

This trip is free but advance registration is required. Registration will open two weeks before the trip and close at 4 p.m. on Thursday, May 5.  Directions for registered participants are below.

Please note the public health guidelines for this trip, as we emerge from the Covid-19 pandemic:

  • Walk is limited to 15 participants plus the leaders. There will not be a waiting list.

  • Participants must register online and acknowledge acceptance of our liability waiver. Each person must register separately. No “drop ins,” please.

Thank you for your flexibility in helping us ensure that everyone remains healthy! Because we have to limit the size of trips, please do not sign up unless you are committed to attending.

Directions: Meet in front of the Community Garden to explore several different habitats in this compact part of GGNRA.  Restroom in meadow, ample parking if there is no race on the waterfront (also easily accessible by transit). Most of the walk is flat, on mostly paved walkways, but there is one short steep descent to the waterfront. Benches are in the garden for resting if needed. Heavy rain cancels.
