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.

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