Singing redstart

A few people have expressed interest in seeing and hearing this American Redstart (Setophaga ruticilla) that appeared on Bodega Head today (7 June 2016).

I managed a couple of song recordings for the record.  Below are two examples[If you can't see the audio files in your e-mail, click on the title of the post above to go to the web page.]
