Ruby-crowned Kinglet #35 & #36

Ruby-crowned Kinglet 035

A male Ruby-crowned Kinglet that was in my back yard yesterday. I was pretty much entertained all day with this little one visits in to my back yard as I was catching up on my yard work. He would announce him self every time he visited with a little warble sound saying to me, “I’m Here, Come Find Me”. He did this 8 or 9 times through out the day. It was very enjoyable trying to capture him and listen to his songs in what will probably just be a short week or two visit as they are passing through. The first image of him is by far one of the best images I’ve ever taken of any bird recently, I’m really quit happy with this one. I will share more in days to come, enjoy and take care 🙂

  1. That is a great photo! I wish i could get one of these birds to stay still long enough just to get an average photo. Super bird photo!


    • Yesterday on this little one, I went through about 300 images to come up with maybe 20 or more workable image. I had the same issues with him jumping around and not staying still. I got a lot of blurred images in this encounter, but I’m happy. Thank you for your comment and your beautiful blog as well. I’d love to see a Blue Groesbeck and the way you captured it, Simply beautiful 🙂

      • You did a great job and thanks for your comment on the Blue Grosbeak.


  2. Very nice captures, and I share the astonishment that you can catch these birds still and sharp!

    An exquisite picture Michael. You certainly have to work to get the right one though. Little birds tend not to sit still for too long at all. Beautiful.
