Large-billed Savannah Sparrows

Several weeks ago I saw 3 Large-billed Savannah Sparrows at Bolsa Chica inside the fenced nesting area. There were what looked to me like at least one or two more but the birds flushed before I had decent looks at all. I wanted to return to verify the number and finally got around to it today. A patient watch this afternoon along the fence yielded a total of 8 (!) LARGE-BILLED SAVANNAH SPARROWS. I saw all 8 at the same time out in the open.
