The American Redstart is a small species of warbler that lives in the Americas. They are migratory, breeding up through parts of Canada and the eastern United States, and wintering in Central America and northern South America.

American Redstarts eat a diet of mostly insects. They sometimes eat small fruits. These lovely little warblers are named for the bright orange patches on the sides of the male bird's tail.
