Male American Redstart in La Playa (Point Loma)

A bright orange and black American Redstart flew across the path right in front of us

this morning on our walk on the bay trail in La Playa (8:35AM, Feb. 14).  The bird flitted

all along the vegetation at the chain-link fence of the second house from the south end of

the dirt path.  Google calls it Bessemer Path, though I've not heard anyone use that name.

     A little farther north on the path, the two big Torrey Pines had at least five great Blue

Herons on nests.

     You can access the 1/2 mile path from the south via Rosecrans, Owen, and San Antonio,

or from the north at the bottom of Talbot St.  It's pretty clear on Google maps.
