Kinglets are partial to evergreen forests, but may be found almost anywhere during migration.
In summer they may be found wherever suitable habitat occurs and some occur in winter in Southern Ontario.
Numbers vary considerably from year to year but this is frequently one of our most common birds during the migratory periods.
Kinglets are our smallest birds, apart from hummingbirds.
This species is known by its orange crown (yellow in the female), bordered by black stripes.
The call is a frequently given, high pitched “see-see-see”. The song is a succession of “see’s”, rising in pitch to a climax, followed by a series of “di-di-di” notes on a lower frequency (some Blackburnian Warblers sing a very similar song).
