My Journey with wildlife photography continues. I hope also you continue to be a part of that journey and maybe even enjoy some of my work and maybe even share your thoughts/comments if I really get lucky.

One of my personal favorite birds

About the Bird (Wikipedia):

The first formal description of the common redstart was by the Swedish naturalist  Carl Linnaeus in 1758 in the tenth edition of his Systema Naturae under the  binomial name Motacilla phoenicurus. The genus Phoenicurus was introduced by the  English naturalist Thomas Forster in 1817.

The common redstart shows some affinity to the European robin in many of its habits and actions. It has the same general carriage, and chat-like behaviour, and is the same length at 13–14.5 cm long but slightly slimmer and not quite as heavy, weighing 11–23 g. The orange-red tail, from which it and other redstarts get their names (“start” is an old word for “tail”), is frequently quivered. Among common European birds, only the black redstart has a similarly colored tail.

Many thanks
