American Redstart: It’s a Lifer!

This is the first American Redstart I’ve ever seen and positively identified :)  It’s an interesting name that matches the male bird perfectly but the female or juveniles? Not so much!

I wish I could have taken a video of the way it flew from tree to tree – showing off her tail… probably the prettiest small bird flight I’ve seen.  I love my backyard. Blessed.
