Observation details

****Very rare. Found by Heydi Lopes a few minutes before. In brushy area around derelict buildings near southeast corner of area (off first access road at southeast bend in Aviation Rd.) Disappeared for a while when we arrived but showed up again in the same area. Extremely skulking and secretive but actively foraging in sparse grass and so often easily seen and often coming very close. Gorgeous bird, overall pale straw colored, bright orange face and chest, dark-and-tan streaks on back.
