It was a beautiful day yesterday so headed out to the wildlife sanctuary...here's a few offerings....cheers...Don

1...Gold Crowned Kinglet. I waited a few minutes for this little guy to emerge. I could hear him in the undergrowth and was lucky enough that he came out for a little sit down in the sun (about 3 seconds), then he was off again....

4....and I got real lucky on this one..the Marsh Wrens (at least I think it's a marsh wren), peeked out for a few seconds. I've rarely seen one of these, although I hear them constantly. Rare capture for moi....

Great Kinglet shots - those and the Marsh Wren are hard birds to catch.
