That Redstart is nice and sharp! I was home today over lunch and those guys were flying all over the backyard... It's been a crazy spring as far as Warblers go, they're everywhere!

Nice collection, I have to second the warblers being out in full force right now. I have never seen so many before. I found a dead black burnian warbler on the trail to my brush pile. Now thats one cool looking bird, I wish would have been alive though.

Nice shots jonny! Looks like you had a good morning. I really like those redstarts and you a captured a nice one. They tend to move quite a bit and are hard to get framed and sharp. Good work.

Thanks again Guys....Yes That redstart certainly made my day.I haven't seen alot of these around this area and actually managed quite a few images of this one...at first I thought it to be some sort of warbler(maybe they are in the warbler family)....this redstart seemed almost curious of my presence...amazing little bird!...also I've seen tons of warblers in the area...must be the "year of the warbler"...gotta take advantage of it grin
