Yesterday, a flickering motion in the front window box caught my attention. The cutest little bird with a red crest was flitting amongst the Heuchera leaves near the window. I picked up my camera and cautiously approached. It was difficult to get some decent shots from the inside since it was bright outside, making a glare on the window, but I did manage a few! This is a Ruby-crowned Kinglet, with other links here and here.
Once when I was out for a walk, I saw numerous of these little Kinglets on the path before me, darting about like tiny gold-green imps with a mission. I wasn`t aware they had red crests that become visible when excited. Click for a larger image.
