Loosely feeding with House Finches and American Goldfinches on the rough ground south of the Marin Headlands Visitor Center between Field and Simmonds Road. Brief but good views before it was spooked and lost in the scrub just to the east of the Marin Headlands Visitor Center. Not relocated but I was on the clock.
