American Redstart (Setophaga ruticilla)

This delicate member of the Warbler family is often seen in tag alders and brush on the banks of Spring Creek, next to the farm. This fellow was found in the road this evening when Benny and I were out for our evening walk. His demise was likely caused by a vehicle, but he was well intact enough for a still life session. Beautiful orange on wings and tail feathers, with a white breast-barely four inches in length (the entire bird is really about the size of a crow's head).
