A Golden Crown

Golden-crowned Kinglet

I don’t always get a chance to view this cute bird each year as they are quite fast and elusive. This Golden-crowned Kinglet is another favorite visitor to our backyard. Early in the Spring I see the Ruby-crowned Kinglet more than I see this little bird. The female is the one with the yellow on the top of her head, whereas the male  has an orange crown patch bordered in yellow and black.

    Such a handsome bird! It can be hard to get a good shot of their crown, you did a great job Joleen!

      Thanks, I sure got lucky with this shot and of course the bird did cooperate a bit.
