The American Redstart is flashy and great fun to watch.
Their range extends as far as northern South America up to Canada.
Finding this crazy warbler is the easy part, it’s keeping them in your bins that can be rather difficult. They move constantly, catching insects, zipping around and fanning their tail.
Their numbers are declining along with many neotropical birds. There are studies being done by organizations such as Smithsonian’s Migratory Bird Center and the North American Bird Conservation Initiative researching the status of songbirds such as the American Redstart.
