    Comments: *MEGA* Found by Sean Sime feeding on the peninsula. Juvenile bird with a bicolored bill. Neck, back, and wings appeared all brown, but pictures (by Josh) show some blue coloring around the shoulder. The light was low by the time I got to it. Undertail coverts were all white, and the bird also lacked any white flank stripe, which a Common Gallinule would have.

    Comments: Running to see the gallinule, I noticed a Grasshopper-Sparrow-shaped bird sitting out in the open in a patch of grass across from lamppost 249. I stopped, put up binoculars, and got completely unobstructed and close views of the bird. It had a complete eye ring, plain buffish colored chest, some orange/yellow coloring to the lores, and a patterned back of red and gray/silver. The shape is also distinctive, and what drew me to the bird in the first place. I went for my camera, and the bird hopped into the weeds. I did not stay any longer, as I wanted to get to the gallinule. The whole experience lasted only a few seconds, but my view of the bird was so close and clear, I have no doubt about the identification at all.
