Subject: Pacheco Marsh - Help with ID
Today I took a walk through Pacheco Marsh in Martinez which turned out to be mostly quiet. Highlights were northern harrier, white-tailed kites and a pair of cinnamon teal along Waterfront Road.
Additionally I found and photographed a bird that I cannot ID. My best guess is juvenile western meadowlark, but the plain back and contrasting malar stripe don't look right. I've had even less success turning the bird into a horned lark, dickcissel, pipit or Ammodramus sparrow. If anyone would like to take a look at the photos, I've posted them at the link below, and I welcome comments.
