Roy,

nice capture of a difficult bird. We've only got the kind with the yellow top :-)
so I can't help you for the name.

difficult isn't the word for it. LUCKY is the word.. especially without anything in between. this was a pretty heavy crop from about 20feet. there were 2 of them chasing each other around. i'd say a mating dance but it's too late in the season.

Kinda looks like a Ruby-crowned Kinglet
