Observation details

Primarily white and cinnamon colored Sparrow-type bird with tiny black-tipped orange-yellow stubby bill and long primaries and primary projection. Foraged in short grass by wooden platform and in gravel trail. Face was marked with buffy-tan crown and auriculars, softly defined white supercilium, tawny upper breast band, extending narrowly along flanks. Belly completely white, tail broadly marked on on outers with white, leaving black triangular center. When wings were open, coverts broadly tipped with white, secondaries appeared entirely white. Most primaries dark blackish gray. Tertials black with cinnamon edging. Gray-brown back with black streaks (description partially borrowed from Matthew Dodder).
