Lake Cuyamaca – Red-throated Pipit, Sep 14, 2018
Richard Griebe and Terry Hurst reported an early calendar date returning American Pipit today Sep 14, 2018 from Lake Cuyamaca but looking at the photos in the eBird checklist I think this appears to be a RED-THROATED PIPIT. The bird has strong blackish lore stripe, strongly marked face and black malar triangle, streaked crown, bright wing covert bars, shorter tail, and pink legs.
