Least Flycatcher Empidonax minimus
Lincoln’s Sparrow Melospiza lincolnii
Canada Geese Branta Canadensis doing what they do
  Only a four hour slog, in an east to west slog. Wet shoes and socks were the order of the day again after more nocturnal rains. The warbler numbers and variety started slow, but picked up steadily into the afternoon (18 species on the day). 
  Not quite as nutsoids as Thursday's walk, but still good numbers of migrants overall, with a few welcome surprises. I was surprised to see an American Red Squirrel in a corner of Mountain View, I didn't realize they were that far into the city. Time to rest my battered mummy feet.
