American Redstart

Field guides say we're well within their breeding range, but we rarely see these guys other than during migration.  A mature male will be black with orange markings; this is either a female or an immature male; the dark flecks in the gray on the head suggest the latter.

f/5.6, 1/400, ISO 1600

a nice top view of this female and a plus for getting the tail in the fan position.

Great setting and the fanned tail makes it even better.
