American Redstart

Tommy E. Burgess May 12, 2008

I have two things to say ken. Very nice capture and composition, and thank you for saving me from having to look through one of my bird ID books later. I got lucky today and photographed one of the ones that stay at the tops of trees, (needless to say I like yours much better), and didn't know what it was. Their very beautiful birds, and you captured it wonderfully. #920165

Description

Ive not had many chances to capture images of these birds in my area since they seem to stay in the tops of tall trees. Today a major Warbler Migration is passing through and they are all along side a lake feeding on an insect hatch. Half the time this bird was far too close to even focus on.
