I had the Redwing this morning. I saw it twice, once at 8:30 and once at 8:55. Both views were very brief, however during the second view it flew across the front of the holly giving a nice look of the red on its wings! This was my second attempt for this bird, so it felt great to get it! I did manage a few very poor record shots in the rain and low light. The bird was very hard to spot- it was quite dark and the rain did not make it any easier, but it was so awesome to see it! :D
