Friday, 7 September 2012 -- A tail-flashing, HY fem. AMERICAN REDSTART was with one of
two large flocks of western migrants at the east end of Lake Cleone's boardwalk. The other large
flock had a MacGILLIVRAY'S WARBLER. Many WILSON'S, YELLOW, & ORANGE-CROWNED
WARBLERS, several WARBLING VIREOS & PAC-SLOPE FLYCATCHERS made up the majority
of other species. I had one mystery Empid that had a narrow, circular eye ring and a round head. It
was only a one second glimpse, and it flew not giving me a chance to see anything else of the bird,
not even the bill.
Lake Cleone is in the main section of MacKerricher SP, north of Fort Bragg. The boardwalk partially
circles the lake and a willowy area (east end), with a trail on the south side. The lake itself now has
seven PINTAILS, said Richard Hubacek; I saw two of them.
