Painted Redstart

Myioborus pictus

The Painted Redstart is also known as the Painted Whitestart. This bird makes its home at elevations of 5000~8000 feet. They are resident in the Mexican highlands and they make their nests on the ground hidden among rocks. Unusual among birds, especially warblers, the females of this species are every bit as showy as the males. Even more remarkable is they actively sing at nesting time, and often pairs will bond by singing together.
