Oriana - what an interesting visit! Most likely seeing its reflection. Thanks for your comment.


Had one tapping at my kitchen window for three hours today! Red crest was bright and very visible...wonder what the heck he was after? I'm sure he would have come in if I cracked it open two inches...oddest little treat in my day!

Lana - thank you Ms. Lana. Glad to hear from you again.
Larry - Sounds like kinglets are being seen A LOT this migration season. They are so cute and yes, very active (as in: tough to photograph!)

Great shots of one of my favorite little birds! I know how difficult it is to get these photos because of their constantly being in motion, but I didn't know that the wing flicking startled the insects into motion to make them easier for the Ruby-crowned Kinglet to find.
The male of the species has the ruby red crown patch that comes out when he is excited. Perhaps this is a female Ruby-crowned Kinglet.


Such a lovely little bird. Great capture, hon!

  • Our eyes and ears should be open and alert to the natural wonders that surround us every day. Take time to look out our windows to see the birds that visit us and open our windows to hear them. Walk around whatever space we have to enjoy the birds in nature. Every day, work on improving our powers of observation.


  • Nature happens. We cannot MAKE natural things happen (or NOT happen). We can create habitats to encourage natural things to happen around us, but there are no guarantees.


  • Birdfeeding comes with responsibilities to the birds and the environment we share with them. If you are unwilling to accept these responsibilities, you shouldn’t feed the birds. We also have a responsibility to share these natural wonders with the next generation.
