Kinglets

I am always thrilled when I get a good photo of a Kinglet; either Ruby-crowned or Golden-crowned. These little “perpetual motion” creatures grace us with their presence only during fall and spring migration.

They are 4.25 inches long, weigh about 0.23 ounces and have a wingspan of 7.7 inches.

Kinglet caught in Stickseed.  We were able to release it.
