Female American Redstart

Redstarts are part of the fall warbler migration through South Carolina and this is the first year I’ve gotten more than a glimpse of one of these speedy songbirds.

This one landed right in front of me when I was standing on a short bridge over a pond outlet late one recent afternoon. She then dropped to the ground so that I was looking down on her at the water level.

She proceeded to splash around in the water which was in the dark shade of the bridge, flashing her colored tail feathers.

  1. A lovely little bird. I’ve never spotted one.
    A pal up here shot a pic of a Tennessee Warbler, which migrates south from Canada, oddly.
