A Little About Me

American Redstarts

The American Redstart is a very active warbler with black upper-parts and head. It has very distinctive orange-red markings on its wings, sides and tail. Its underparts are usually white and its bill, legs and feet are black. It darts about very quickly gleaning insects from the air or from foliage. Sometimes it is referred to as the butterfly of the bird world because of its quick fluttering movements and bright orange colors on the wings and tail.
This bird prefers habitats of deciduous 2nd growth forests.
