Collared Redstart

This species was great! After finding one along a trail, they would follow us around for a bit. From what I've read, they might have been waiting for us to kick up some insects for them to eat. They are extremely active birds...always moving around, which made them hard to follow with the 500mm lens. I finally dropped that strategy and had better luck with the handheld 300mm f/4.
