|Here you can see the white underparts with the yellow tail feathers characteristic of a female or a 1st year male American Redstart.
|The darker male has orange instead of yellow.
|The spread tail feathers really catch the light.
|The wings have yellow or orange bars.
|When they shake their tails, they also spread their wings. And yes, this one is standing on a dog turd to do its dance.
|From this perspective you can see that the orange feathers are only on the sides of the tail.
|The orange wingbars on the male are dashing.
|Here you can see the yellow patches on either side of the chest, just in front of the wings on this female. The yellow tail looks like band that goes from one side to the other when the tail is not spread.
This next picture should be the next to last one, but somehow it jumped ahead of where I tried to put it. Can't seem to get it to stay put!
|More obvious from here.
|Here and below is a female with only half her tail yellow.
|Here she is again.
|Apparently no worse for it.
