"The" Ruby-crowned Kinglet

February 09, 2013  •  1 Comment

We got out briefly today and our best bird was a male Ruby-crowned Kinglet.  Kinglets are not uncommon this time of year in the Willamette Valley, but such a bold display of the ruby-colored crest has been somewhat hard to come by for us - so we thought we would share our brief but very exciting encounter with male actively displaying its big, bright crest.
