American Redstart-Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens
- Wed. 15 July, 2009--During the Mendocino Coast Audubon walk this morning (approx. 11:00 AM),Trudy Jensen spotted an Adult Male "Singing" American Redstart. All observers on the walk got good views. It's location was in the West section of the Gardens along the north path about 30 Yards (just a guess!) from the very obvious pump-house. It was moving above the creek to the south. If you look at a map of the Gardens it was located in the West section of the "Red Alders and Riparian Vegetation".
Other birds of note were a calling Greater Yellowlegs flying over and about 8 Western Bluebirds (also found by Trudy) an apparent first for the Gardens.
