Golden-crowned Kinglets

There’s another, serious, post in the works, but I want to add this “informal” page.

I took a number of good pictures of several different species on today’s walk. As a rule, I try to limit myself to one, or sometimes two pictures of a bird. However, when I got to processing the pictures of these Kinglets, I just couldn’t decide which one to post. Instead you’re seeing many of the good images.

I’ve been trying to capture the male’s flaming head for a while; these are the best I’ve taken to date.

Kinglets are the smallest birds we have in NC, apart from Ruby-throated Hummingbirds. The Golden-crowned Kinglet is just a bit smaller than the Ruby-crowned.
