Golden-crowned Kinglet (Regulus satrapa)
Here you can see clearly how this bird got its name. A few Golden-crowned Kinglets have arrived from the Far North to spend the winter here just north of Lake Ontario. Many more will travel southward to spend the cold months in the U.S. AND a few live here all year round. So you'd think I'd see these tiny songbirds all the time.
Well maybe I do and maybe I don't. They usually flit about so quickly that who knows what bird I'm seeing?

This kinglet was more accommodating than most I've seen. At least he sat still long enough to get a good photo of his feathers. Sadly I did not get a great shot of his eye though. I guess I'll have to go back and try again!
