Rustic Bunting (Emberiza rustica) - 14Jan2015

This vagrant was hanging out with the hobos in Golden Gate Park for a long time and I was lucky enough to have an excuse for work to go and pay a visit.  Granted I had a horrible old camera, but it's not often I get a coded bird.

"This bunting breeds across northern latitudes of the Palaearctic from Norway in the west to Kamchatka (Russia) in the east. It is a full migrant, wintering in central and eastern Asia (primarily from eastern China to Japan)."
