I did not see the eye color. Jay Carroll later refound this bird. It had a soft liquid whistled song, that was infrequently given."

American Redstart (Setophaga ruticilla) (1)
- Reported Jul 12, 2020 13:04 by Jim Royer
- Pecho Road Willows, San Luis Obispo, California
- Map: http://maps.google.com/?ie=UTF8&t=p&z=13&q=35.3170687,-120.85271&ll=35.3170687,-120.85271
- Checklist: https://ebird.org/checklist/S71406156
- Comments: "A dull female (?) giving a call note, similar to a Yellow Warbler. It was a smallish warbler with a gray head and yellow on the sides of the upper tail. It had light gray unmarked underparts with yellow on the sides. It was actively feeding and spreading its tail in a mixed flock to the right of the main trail (in patch of trees nearest Pecho, but back from the road - even with the cypress tree farthest from the road). I don’t think it’s the same bird as the one on Nancy because it appeared to have none of the dark patches on the head and chest like that one. I didn’t see if it had a patch in the wings. I observed it off and on for a couple of minutes then lost it."

- Comments: "Adult male in grassy field just up the road from 1800 Cayucos Creek Road and before Thunder Canyon Road at 1340 hours (2.15 mile up road from Hwy 1 Bridge). Bird was feeding in field with various grasses, fennel, and prickly ox-tongue with Lazuli Buntings and Blue Grosbeaks. Initially spotted along the fence line where it was close to both of those species. Similar in size and shape to Lazuli, but smaller than Blue Grosbeak and with a smaller gray bill. The Indigo was completely deep blue above and below with no wing bars. Lighting affected the blue color and sometimes made the plumage look very dark blue to almost black. I did not note the leg color. No calls heard."

Eventually, I was able to snap some good photos as the bird forged low in an exposed patch of the oak tree farthest to the north.

Immature (SY) male undergoing heavy molt, lacking tail feathers, but still unmistakably AMRE. Yellow/orange in the wings and sides of breast, with gray turning to black on the wings, head, and breast. White belly. No tail! Also heard wet, metallic "tsip" calls often, which is how I was able to initially locate the bird."
