Every spring my grandma, father, brother, and myself go to Whitefish Point to see the migration of hundreds of birds. This spring we were lucky enough to find this little gem, a female American Redstart, building her nest among cedar trees. She would disapear for several minutes collecting more materials before a brief return to apply them to the nest. It was not easy to capture a picture before she left again but I could not pass on the opportunity to capture something seldom seen.
