Frequently fans tail and spreads wings.

Wingspan: 16-19 cm (6-7 in)
Weight: 6-9 g (0.21-0.32 ounces)

What an amazing looking bird Mario. The colours are spectacular. The image is beautifully sharp and much detail can be examined. The shape of the bird reminds me of our Superb Blue Wren, in Australia, which is glorious bird too. Excellent.

Hi Mario, I've spent a lot of time in the Mississauga area yet you keep pulling up these great shots of birds I haven't seen before. I must be more observant when I'm back. This American Redstart is another great shot from you. The colour and detail are bang on. The composition is very natural looking with excellent depth of field. Enjoyed.

Thanks, John
