the american redstart .... another new bird

Ok, while this bird has been around here for some time, this is the first time I actually had my camera out and took a few pictures of it. Looking up on the Internet, I'd concluded that this bird is the American Redstart; "A boldly patterned warbler of second growth woods, the American Redstart frequently flashes its orange and black wings and tail to flush insect prey from foliage" which is what he did this afternoon while I was out and ready with camera in hand.

  1. I've never seen that guy. He is quite a colorful character! Kinda Halloweeny. Love your great photos of him doing his little jig.
