- Comments: "Along the path just south of Coronado Dr. maybe 100 ft east of the street. Looks like a molting male. Associating with Scaly-breasted Munias and acting quite wary, never letting me get close for better photos. Heard buzz call a couple of times. After a minute or two the bird flushed towards Coronado Dr. and swerved to the right and out of sight."
