American Redstarts, energetic members of the warbler family, are a favorite summer resident of our woods. The males are boldly black and orange. (You can see a photo of a male redstart by clicking here) The females less bright in gray and yellow are as energetic and adorable. Both are entertaining to watch flit among the treetops and into the shrubbery. Here the female is gathering materials for nest-building and uncharacteristically sits for a photograph!
Keep Smiling! 🙂
