A Little About Me

American Redstarts

The American Redstart is part of the Wood-Wrabler family, and its about 5 inches long.
As you can see here the male is black with orange patches on it sides, tail and wings and has a white belly and a touch of white under the tail. Redstarts eat mostly insects and flying insects. You can find these guys in deciduous and mixed forests, small groves and second growth woodlands. These birds are very active and can’t stay still for much more then a few seconds. That makes it a challenge to even try to photograph them.
