Ruby Crowned Kinglet male. These guys are really tiny measuring in at just 1 cm longer than the largest Ruby Throated Hummingbirds. They are double the weight of the hummers though but half the weight of a Chickadee....and they don't know how to relax..almost always moving.


I managed a few shots today of my little friend here who continues to frequent my yard and he even visited a sunflower feeder for several minutes. This is the first time I have witnessed this species go to a feeder. They are predominantly insect eaters.......Actually I cant be certain this is the same one that was in my yard a few days ago...the crest does appear to be different in size and is more orange....

A Brown Creeper visited my yard today and gave me several good opportunities for shots....very quick little hunters.
