Bird was still around this evening 

Was able to observe for some time, as it was foraging along the trail near GPS: 33.662289, -117.941038  Google Maps: https://goo.gl/maps/ouHky6LtxxcSkNxe7
  
eBird list here with some photos of the bird:

Nice find James.

James Bailey found a Chestnut-collared Longspur at Fairview Park in Costa Mesa this morning. Photos check out. The bird was primarily wandering the trails in the mustard forest west of the parking lot off Placentia Avenue. Jeff may have refound the bird a few minutes ago (based on hearing calls) on trails southwest of the airstrip.

Note that there are vernal pools around there. These are sensitive habitats that often host protected plants and animals. They are fenced, but please DO NOT trespass onto them.
