The American Redstart (Setophaga ruticilla) is the emblem bird for the national Partners in Flight initiative. As a nearctic-neotropical migratory bird, its migratory life history connects people in North America (the bird's breeding grounds) with those in Latin America and the Caribbean (it's non-breeding grounds). The DoD Partners in Flight program works with migratory birds, like the American Redstart, and their habitats on U.S. military lands where it breeds, as well as with partners in Latin America and the Caribbean. We strive to connect birds, habitats and people throughout the Western Hemisphere and beyond.
