I found a pair of birds in suitable breeding habitat during the breeding season, 3 weeks ago. One was singing and skylarking and another calling about 3 hours after taking the photo above. So this is a possible breeding record. It should be noted, however, that migrant or wandering birds are still appearing along the coast. So even the birds I saw singing in proper habitat could be migrants and not breeders.
