Golden-crowned Kinglet

Regulus satrapa

Description:

"Golden-crowned Kinglets are boldly marked with a black eyebrow stripe and flashy lemon-yellow crest. A good look can require some patience, as they spend much of their time high up in dense spruce or fir foliage. To find them, listen for their high, thin call notes and song. Though barely larger than a hummingbird, this frenetically active bird can survive –40 degree nights, sometimes huddling together for warmth."

Habitat:

Seen in my suburban yard among mimosa trees and bushy conifers.

Notes:

About eight of them and two Ruby-crowned Kinglets were flitting about.
