> Today when we went to Oso to find the American Redstart, we found a very bad situation. A tree company was cutting brush and tree limbs across the street from the nursery. They were using heavy equipment and cutting high into the trees and it was loud. Also, someone was using a riding mower along the side of the road. Despite the racket we could hear the Redstart calling from high in the poplars just north of the area across from the nursery. Karen suggested that we stay until noon hoping that the workers would take a break for lunch. Sure enough they did. The noise ended and the Redstart appeared on a branch about 30 feet in front of us. Here are two photos.

> So if you go to see the Redstart, don't give up because of the cutting that has been done. The bird is still there.
