American Redstops

Flashy, bold, and energetic, the American Redstart has stalled its northern migration here for a few days along with hundreds of yellow rumped warblers, pine warblers, red winged blackbirds and tree swallows. Lots of traffic moving in the air and flitting through the cattails to feast on the early chironomid hatches coming off the pond.
Unfortunately for this pair, their migration ended at the kitchen window.
