Floy and I saw the male and I saw what was either an immature bird or a mature female.
I wasn't sure about the the female ID until I ran into Michael Mammoser later in the morning who said that the female vaguely resembles a Grasshopper Sparrow.
Bingo! It vaguely looked like a GRSP, but the feathers had dark centers with a reddish-tawny outer edges. The bird I saw also had a thin, yellow eyebrow.
We encountered the female on Bay Trail foraging on the edge of the dirt road as we made our way to Pond A2E.
