I spent an hour this morning at the Baths, with no unusual species, but two interesting plumages. One was a Pomerine Jaeger with a full set of spoon tail feathers, flying high over the sea chasing a Heermann's Gull. The other was a Pigeon Guillemot, one of the latest staying I've seen, so late that it was starting to molt into basic, with some white frosting on the head and mantle. It was carrying a fish toward the breeding rocks.
Around 9, I spotted the Black-throated Sparrow in it's aforementioned parking lot at Battery Caulfield and Washington, but was unable to refind the Lark Bunting at Crissey.
