The male American Redstart (Setophaga ruticilla) – coal-black with vivid orange patches on the sides, wings, and tail – is a lively warbler that hops among tree branches in search of insects. Females and young (first-year) males are gray-green overall with bright yellow patches at the shoulders, wings, and tailbases. In Latin America, where the American Redstart spends its winters, this species is called Candelita, the little torch.
