Day 14: A kinglet and his crown

We've had this little Ruby-crowned kinglet hanging around the island for the past few days. These little birds are one of my favorite spring time visitors. We usually get a few waves of migrating landbirds showing up in the spring and fall. Some individuals actually appear to make this island a regular stopover. We have a Golden-crowned sparrow the has spent every winter since 2007 here! This spring the landbirds have been scarce so we were quite happy to see this kinglet.
