Friends, this tiny bird is new to me, had to travel to North Dakota to find him. He is an American Redstart, and he is showing an attitude in this image. Actually he is waiting for some insects to buzz by so he can catch them. He has three spots of orange on his black, one on the tail, one on the wing and the inside shoulder spots shown in the top image, the image below shows his spots used to id him. At first i thought this was an oriole, but he is much smaller. til Tomorrow MJ

Speaking of tiny birds-have you seen any chickadee’s around lately? I haven’t but I have seen several hummingbirds here actually stopping long enough to be photographed.
Lots of chickadees especially at our winter feeders, and lots of hummingbirds only in summer, stay tuned, i will find some hummers for you, MJ
