I gather that the Farallons bird has been hypothesized to be the same bird that was in San Mateo last spring. They both have a missing foot and from what I have been told the age matches. I have not checked it out directly. Alvaro

Interestingly the first record of LBBG for SF County (I believe) was recorded just a week ago on the Farallones: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S49905257 The Ocean Beach bird is a year younger then the Farallon bird, so not the same. Great find Jonah and Dominik,
