First Backyard Ruby-crowned Kinglet

Despite the blizzard conditions up north this year, we had not had a flake of snow until today. We are having a few flakes now. Cold weather and snow bring the birds out to our feeders. Among our many visitors today, of 21 species, we saw our first backyard Ruby-crowned Kinglet!

Not the sharpest picture, but the one that shows the ruby crown best:

  1. We watch our birds too. We have a few hummingbirds that feed and of course our sparrows. We don’t tend to have all the great birds you do. Ours are pretty plain here but we love everyone of them.

    Great photography by the way.

    Have a fabulous day. Big hugs to you both. πŸ™‚

      1. PS – The paedophilia example is a poor one. That has nothing to do with the conduct of science, and there is a living example. Check the man who discovered prions. He left the USA, but he is and was a good scientist. His work has affected the lives of millions of people, and it was and is solid.
