American Redstart at Terrapin Nature Center

The weatherman promised sunny skies a couple of days ago, but I awoke to gray and gloomy skies. I really wanted to get to Terrapin, so I vacillated until 8:00 or so and then went, despite the lousy skies.
I didn’t break any records, but I found a few decent birds and will go back soon.

I haven’t seen a Cedar Waxwing in a while, and this one appeared as I was leaving.

I’m still looking for a good male American Redstart. The tail fanning is typical behavior of these birds as they forage.
