Ruby crowned kinglet

Regulus calendula


Small bird, active forager, from tree top to ground level. Distintive wing bars and eye ring.


Urban California Central valley backyard. Only seen in winter months.


I posted this bird last winter and got several suggestions Bell's vireo, and Orange crowned warbler, but the pixs were low quality. I was thinking Kinglet or Cassin's Vireo. Help Please. Thanks for ID help...
