    She’s beautiful. According to my bird books, we have Redstarts here, but I have never seen one. Wherever they hang out, it isn’t near us, or at established feeders.

    Your birds are of course not in my birdbooks, but according to wiki american redstarts are unrelated to the european ones.

    My father has noticed some straw hanging out of the nesting box affixed to our house. I looked out of the window and there is indeed some straw in there. Maybe the redstarts nest there finally! That would be grand, I love their song even though it is a little non-melodic. Here is a short vid I recorded -click-
