BELINDA GROVER PHOTOGRAPHY

STOPS ALONG THE WAY

FEMALE REDSTART

29 Comments

I saw this female Redstart during nesting period last Spring. We were climbing up a steep, tree lined path when someone up ahead motioned to the nest. This shot was taken on an uneven surface through the trees and although the bird’s body was nice and sharp, her head wasn’t as sharp as I would have liked it. Yet, it was my first nesting Redstart, so all and all not a bad beginning to the season.

  6. This is a beautiful photograph regardless of technical points. What do the Redstarts use to make their nests? It’s impossibly fragile looking. Can anyone help with this question? Please do.
