Just saw the photo from Chris Rivers' eBird list.  The photo that he showed us was just of the head.  It did look a little off but I was in a hurry to get to Ft. Mason before a friend left.  Glad that you got to see the bird.Due diligence was needed.

Hi Dave,
I never saw the bird.  Just the photo from the camera.  I'm sorry now that I didn't stick around and look for it.  Nice to run into to you today.

  Chris Rivers who I met this morning at Crissy Lagoon just posted a pic of the Lark Bunting on Ebird confirming it and ending my confusion!
