Common Redstart

Phoenicurus phoenicurus

The first, and so far only, record for North America of this species was found during early October on St. Paul Island. This long-distance migrant breeds as close as central Asia and while further records in North America are unlikely, the late fall period is the most likely time considering range and timing of migration for this species.
