American Redstart

Hi folks…we are three eastern birders visiting San Diego. This morning all three of us spotted a male American Redstart in the Bernardo Bay Trails area near Lake Hodges, approximately 300-400yds from the lake. Approximate GPS coordinates. 33.053389, -117.082245. We assume this is a relatively rare bird here in SD county, but we are extremely familiar with them from birding back home. We don’t have good photos because it was feeding actively in a rather thick bush….all that is visible is a black-and-orange blur. Sorry for bothering you if this bird is not rare here.
