Lark Bunting, Solano County

I got out this morning for some quick birding with Jay Riggio and Noah Reid. We were hoping to find Mountain Plovers, but had to settle for a nice Lark Bunting instead. We first spotted it foraging in with a flock of Lark Sparrows (another non-lark lark - but we did see the "real" lark - Horned Lark, too). I thought I was going to have to settle for this photo:

But fortunately it came closer. 

The bird was in a small flock (~15) Lark Sparrows in an osage orange hedgerow right on Robinson Road.
