Painted Redstart foraging

I got this photo of the Painted Redstart while it was foraging--it has it's head down and somewhat tilted as it goes after an insect. This pic shows the white wing patch nicely.

Painted Redstarts are a southwestern U.S. speciality whose range in mostly from Central America north into Mexico, but it comes up into parts of Arizona, S. Nevada, S California, N central New Mexico. Another finger of range comes up into the Big Bend National Park area of Texas. Canon City is far from its normal range (though we do have a number of other southwest specialities such as our population of Black Phoebes, Curve-billed Thrashers, Chihuahuan Ravens, Ladder-backed Woodpeckers and the mostly southwestern Rufous-crowned Sparrows).
