A Flash of Orange

A Flash of Orange.   There’s this tiny little bird the size of a small warbler that flits through both heavy underbrush and low hanging limbs. No look up higher, it’s up there! If you haven’t guessed by now I’m writing of the American Redstart. Like a miniature oriole, the flash of orange will taunt you as he’s in sight but then gone. Such fun birds to watch, the Redstart male shown here and his more modestly adorned mate thrive on insects throughout almost all states bordering and east of the Mississippi River. Watch closely and be fast as they challenge you to capture a photo of them.
