American Redstart

A male American redstart (Setophaga ruticilla) seen in Dry Tortugas National Park on this trip.  I’ve previously photographed American redstarts in the Dry Tortugas, but the photos from this trip were easier to get given the number of birds that were in and around our camp site.  I also had the luxury of time as we were camping out with not nearly as much time pressure as we had last year to return to the ferry in time.

  1. Beautiful images. American Redstarts do not sit still very often.

    • Thanks Dan. You are totally right about that. This bird was non-stop movement… Jumping, hopping, spinning and flitting about. It was tiring just watching him.
