Oh my! So much yellow! So the Redstarts have very distinctive tails, right? I think that's what I saw in Prospect Park the other day. They were flying in the canopy and but I was able to note that tail.

Thanks Amarilla! Yes restarts flash their tail coverts often. They also have a distinctive call.
