American Redstart

Two males were singing and chasing each other in the area where the seasonal road turns back north after a brief east-west stretch. Both were adults. Black on the head, throat, breast, and upper parts. Belly white. Large orange patches on the sides of the breast and in the wings. Tail was black with orange patches at the base. Tail was often spread flashing these orange spots. One of these birds is likely the same bird that I found in June; now in complete adult plumage.
