Ruby Crowned Kinglet

Teeny, tiny little things that zip frantically in the trees looking for bugs. Ruby Crowned Kinglets love to summer in Canada and winter in the southern United States.

Trying to photograph these little guys is really an exercise in futility. Rarely sitting for more than a moment, they restlessly flick their wings and zip to another branch. Where the heck are you? Can you wait just for a moment so I can take your picture?

How I love these little birds and wish I had the energy they have.


Success is almost totally dependent upon drive and persistence.

The extra energy required to make another effort or try another approach is the secret of winning.

  1. Did his ruby crown fall off? πŸ‘‘
    I’m learning bird names and many of them describe them physically. I don’t see these by me. πŸ˜‘

  2. Hmmm… I’m wondering if these Kinglets are what I’ve been calling “flying mice”? They are so tiny, flitting from tree to tree in large numbers so quickly it’s impossible to capture them!
