White-capped Redstart

Here’s another repeat species: the White-capped Redstart.  I previously wrote about the Plumbeous Redstart.  The White-capped Redstart has the same overall shape, but I think he’s cuter.

He spends his day flicking his tail up and down while standing on rocks.  Here’s his tail at high alert.

Every time we passed over water we saw a redstart, which makes sense because that’s where they do all their eating and breeding.

This is a female redstart.  It’s hard to tell if it’s aPlumbeous Redstart or a White-capped Redstart because they look the same, but she’s stunning nonetheless.
