Birding Tilden Park 12/4/16 – Updated

List Updated with additions from Clayton Anderson

Today I went birding on a Golden Gate Audubon Trip led by Clayton Anderson. The trip was on Park Drive and the area around it, which is closed in the winter to protect Newts. Highlights for me were seeing a Red-Breasted Sapsucker and a number of Golden-crowned Kinglets. There were many good looks at Red-breasted Nuthatches and Brown Creepers. The group identified 33 bird species. No newts were seen except one that was squashed. I did seen a brush rabbit on the way out.
