The redstart is back

The garden red tails love our campo, because it has many insects and the meadows under the trees and the connecting paths are cut short, so that these songbirds easily come to the insects.
I had heard it already in April, but only now seen. The female has not arrived yet. The redstart phoenicurus phoenicurus overwinter in Africa in the Sahel. It is amazing that these little birds travel so far in a few weeks.
It is fascinating to watch them staking out their territory, flying from tree to tree. As soon as they are sitting on an open branch or high up on the tree, they start a virtuoso song.
