About 3:30 this afternoon Mona and Hortacio Mena found and photographed a Gray-crowned Rosy-Finch in Contra Costa County. It was in Tilden Regional Park, on the Seaview Trail, near the Upper Big Springs Trail, at these coordinates: 37 deg 53’ 32.3” N, 122 deg 13’ 51.6” W.
They added, "It was on the trail foraging for a good 5 minutes, until it got flushed out by folks. We were able to get pretty close to the bird.”
Here is a cropped version of their photograph:
What a find!!
