The following bird(s) were photographed Sept. 2 at Stewart (up next to Alaska). I will be grateful if someone can set me straight on the ID. With the pink blush I was trying to make it into a Hoary Redpoll until I realized the pink was on different parts of the bird depending on its orientation. The bird was just above a red roof and the pink is a reflection from the roof so ignore the pink. My best guess has been a 1st year female American Redstart but the colour doesn't quite match the pictures in my reference books that show less breast striping. Some of these photos show a yellow rump not shown on any of my illustrations of a Redstart and is more suggestive of a Yellow-rumped Warbler but the overall colour is much more grey than I expect for a 1st winter Yellow-rump.
