Saturday, June 17, 2017 Update on Redstart report

Seward, Alaska

I was reassured by several birders that not all unconfirmed eBird reports are accurate, that the Yellow Warbler, which is common here, sounds a lot like the Redstart, and that while anything is possible with birds, it is unlikely that there were several Redstarts at Exit Glacier. Pat Pourchot noted that there are very few records in Southcentral Alaska with the last reliable report about 10 years ago.

So, I’ll keep looking, but not expecting too much.

Happy Birding!

Update: Gary Rasmussen reported that a Redstart was seen and photographed by several Anchorage birders at Beech Street, Anchorage on and around August 25, 2014. Thanks, Gary. Time for another one, I say!
