Possibly not an AMERICAN REDSTART (??)

Postby lani » Wed Jun 21, 2017 7:38 am

I received this from David Sibley last night:

I was just outside Homer on the Diamond Ridge trail to the beach this afternoon at about 5 pm and heard an American Redstart song clearly and several times. It was near the top of the trail, in the ravine just upstream from where the trail first comes to the edge of the ravine. I did not see it, so can't be completely confident in the ID, but the song sounded like a typical Redstart. Hopefully someone can refind it to confirm. 

Best,
David Sibley

Possisbly not an AMERICAN REDSTART

I got another email from David Sibley this morning and he thinks it might not have been an American Redstart he heard yesterday at the Diamond Creek Trail area, but possibly a Yellow Warbler.  He said he was "...questioning the Redstart ID.  But maybe still worth checking."

If anyone comes up with a redstart, however, please let us all know!!
