· Downy Woodpecker at SFSU

I spotted this little guy a couple weeks back while I was checking out some Pygmy Nuthatches in the trees on campus at SF State. They are actually cutting down a lot of the trees lately... I don't know why, I'm sure the groundskeepers have their reasons, but it is still sad and I hope that these birds which rely on the Monterrey Pines on campus for their food and habitat won't be displaced!

Today, Hannah and I took a morning walk through Alamo Square, Buena Vista, and the Panhandle, and saw the following:

Scrub Jays
Anna's Hummingbirds
Black Pheobe
??? Warbler
Red Tail Hawks
Chestnut Backed Chickadee (?)
Giant fungus fruiting from a tree

I'll be back later this week with a pic of something we found yesterday which is really exciting and will be the source of a Bird Brain-related project in the coming month!
