The golden crowned kinglet is one of the tiniest birds in North America, measuring only about 3.5 inches. It is marveled for its ability to survive the harshest of cold temperatures. And believe it or not, this bird WINTERS in New England! Winters!!!
This past winter, I had a pair of kinglets visiting my yard pretty regularly. My camera is not particularly great at capturing action shots, and their visits were usually early morning when lighting wasn't optimal, but I persisted at trying to capture these li'l cuties anyway!
Although the weather doesn't currently feel like it in Massachusetts, the golden crowned kinglets seem to have disappeared, so it is just another sign that spring is on the way.
I hope you'll stop by on Monday to see what flies in with the letter H!
