Hi all:
My friend Mike Williams sent me this photo he took of a painted redstart (Myioborus pictus) in the backyard of his home in the Southern Arizona desert. Wow! Beautiful.

This little bird feeds on insects and spiders and prefers mountain canyons at about 6,000 feet.

Thanks, Mike!! This is the only way most of us will ever get to see this gorgeous bird. /Gary
