Hello Tweeters,

The Indigo Bunting was relocated at 3-Forks at 9:45 am, in the NW corner of the second meadow.
The bunting was singing from the grass meadow, flew to a perch on the blackberry, and from the blackberry to a perch half way up into a black cottonwood and back to the blackberry.

The American Redstart's were relocated at the Stillwater site at 11:15 am. The difficult part was finding
the first right hand fork in the first meadow; the meadow has been ploughed, obliterating the worn track.
As you go west into the first meadow, when the track bends left heading south, walk through the ploughed
area west, southwest till you find the track again. Follow the track, passing the first left hand trail to the
creek. Proceeding straight ahead you drop down to the creek, crossing over a wood and metal foot bridge
with no rails. From there follow where others have walked on the grass through another meadow
(which now covers the worn path). Keep walking till you see a blue and an orange flagging on foliage to your right.
Here the path is visible and takes you to the creek. Directly across the creek is more flagging. The
American Redstart's were first heard, then observed on the other side of the creek.
