American Redstart at Creekside Park Albany

Sam Zuckerman

AMRE female singing at Creekside Park, Albany side, on hillside south of trail between Madison Street and Cerrito Creek crossing late Sat. morning. Moved back and forth from near trail to further up hillside near trail going up Albany Hill. Alerted by unfamiliar high pitched song that first sounded like Brown Creeper, but quickly identified as unrecognized warbler. Eventually sighted repeatedly, showing grey head, offwhite belly and yellow patches on side and tail. Vocalization recording and photos at
