I checked and checked about car break-ins at San Francisco. I heard a good new, there were only 80 cars break-ins daily lately so I have to take advantage about it. I went to get this warbler at Salesforce Park in the 4th floors, San Francisco, California.

Red Throated Diver - Gavia stellata)
Norfolk


The red-throated loon (North
America) or red-throated diver (Britain and Ireland) (Gavia stellata) is a migratory aquatic bird found in the northern hemisphere. The most widely distributed member of the loon or diver family, it breeds primarily in Arctic regions, and winters in northern coastal waters.
The red-throated loon is the smallest and lightest of the world's loons. In winter, it is a nondescript bird, greyish above fading to white below.
During the breeding season, it acquires the distinctive reddish throat patch which is the basis for its common name. Fish form the bulk of its diet, though amphibians, invertebrates, and plant material are sometimes eaten as well.

A monogamous species, red-throated loons form long-term pair bonds. Both members of the pair help to build the nest, incubate the eggs (generally two per clutch), and feed the hatched young.

The red-throated loon has a large global population and a significant global range, though some populations are declining. Oil spills, habitat degradation, pollution, and fishing nets are among the major threats this species faces. Natural predators—including various gull species, and both red and Arctic foxes, will take eggs and young. The species is protected by international treaties.

A delightful wildflower in the Ottawa area, a relative of the Sunflower, the Sunchoke has a tuber that is edible and quite amazing raw in salads or cooked like a potato.

I am not a highly skilled photographer at the best of times, and weaker still with wildflowers, but this species was a continuing delight in my excursions this fall and I wanted to record it. I hope this does it justice.
