This tiny bird's first appearance at the suet feeder was in late December. After many, many failed attempts to catch this fast-flickering, never stay in one spot, little thing, I finally got a shot (albeit not the best or focused clearly). Now I have proof!
What is it you ask? A Ruby-crowned Kinglet! A new Yard Bird for My Mountain Green.
He is so small compared to the other birds nearby.
Patiently waits his turn with a House Finch (above) and a Black-capped Chickadee (below).
Sometimes he hovers like a hummingbird to feed from the bottom of the feeder if another finch is feeding above. Persistent little thing for sure!
Hope you enjoy this tiny visitor to My Mountain Green as much as I!
