American Redstart

Redstarts are moderately common at Magee Marsh in May, with peak numbers typically occurring during the third week.  The males are distinctive with their black bodies and bright orange-red flanks and wing stripes, but the females and juveniles often confuse novice birders since they have yellow markings and gray bodies instead of the orange-red and black of the males.  When photographing the males, flash is extremely useful in exposing detail in the black plumage.  Click on the thumbnails below for high-resolution views of both plumage variants.
