First spotted bird at 8:45AM. It was foraging in the gravel and low weeds on the side of the dike about 300 meters past the gravel "peninsula" just past the PCH boardwalk/tern colony. With a flock of ~10 SAVS and a WCSP. Seen and studied at close distance...lanky sparrow with long tail. Rufous cap, bicolored bill, breast spot seen well. Photos coming.
