Feathers on Friday

American Redstart
American Redstart female

Male American Redstarts are pretty little birds, dashing in their crisp black and orange plumage, so the females are often overlooked. They are bedecked in bright yellow and varying shades of grey, and a lot harder to see than the flashy males, who are happy to pose for you. Not the bird of the week, though – I saw a lifer yesterday, one I’ve missed on three separate trips out for it – Palm Warbler! It may be setting up territory, so I’ll be back to see if I can find it again, and maybe get some images.
