A bit of levity here, but I saw that golden crest on the first photo and could not unsee that! Looks like Lawrence’s Goldfinch hybrid with Tufted Puffin! Awesome bird.

Subject: [SFBirds] Local Interest - Western Tanager, Lawrence's Goldfinch
Yesterday there was a fairly drab WESTERN TANAGER at El Polin Springs. Today at Fort Mason, a female LAWRENCE'S GOLDFINCH was foraging on the ground with a few of the many HOUSE FINCHES. There were three young HOODED ORIOLES as well at Fort Mason - they have been there for a few days without being accompanied by any adults.
