Yesterday this solitary male American Redstart zipped in from the tree tops in my yard and perched on the birdbath for only several seconds. I never would have seen it if I not had my camera pointed in that direction following other songbird activity = pure luck!

I had never seen a redstart until this year. Maybe they have been around but just never noticed. Your pictures have had me looking closer at the birds
Thanks

Love the warble pics. Been a while since i went out in early may to find them. Only redstart i ever saw was out on presque isle bay near Erie. Lots of warblers must pass through there running up the lake erie coast in spring.

Nice captures!
There has been a Black Throat Blue Warbler on my suet feeder the last 2 days. I had never seen one before this one showed up.
It is not the least bit afraid of me and i have stood watching it from 4 or 5 feet.
It's breeding ground is much farther north so I suppose it will be gone soon.

I had a solitary migrating Black-throated Blue Warbler land in my yard last Wednesday. It was here on and off all day long until Saturday - haven't seen it since. What was most interesting for me to observe while studying the schedule of its feeding behavior and patterns, was that it fed 95% of the time at all three grape jelly feeders set for the Baltimore Orioles. In the balance, it periodically visited both suet feeders and fwd on insects in my maple and box elder trees.

Cool photos, as usual Jonathan. Redstarts are one of the very, very few warblers I can still hear!

Thank you to all for your kind words and comments.

I have seen only one other warbler species recently in this colder weather and heavy cloud cover - my regular visiting pair of Ruby-crowned Kinglets . If it ever warms up enough soon, a few stragglers might show up at the tail end of this year's irruptive spring migration.

Great captures...Again.
Like you, I have suet and jelly feeder. I never saw this finch on the jelly feeder. He did eat a LOT of orange flavored suet. This bird was here for 2 days. I have yet to see it today.
We have been feeding birds for several decades and it is always exciting to see a new specie show up.
I made a few captures but they are not as good as yours. I would need a better "bird" lens for that.
Thanks for posting your photos.
