Hello Roy,

it looks like afirecrest but yours has a more red coloredstripe instead of orange! But it is sure family from it when it is not a firecrest :-)

Hi Roy,

Very nice capture!!!

I'd say it's a Ruby-Crowned Kinglet. I was chasing these around during the spring migration, and couldn't get a good shot of one. A number of people would tell me where they spotted one, and I'd run off to where they pointed me to, but no luck. . . Like the Cubs fans (and it looks like the Bears too!), I'll have to "wait until next year"

:-)

Scott

Neat (really nice)picture - it matches the picture in my guide of a Ruby-Crowned Kinglet (not that I would have known where to look without Scott's ID first).

How do people judge size so well? You said 3-4" and my guide says 4". I'm lucky if I can tell "large", "medium" or "small."

Roy

I checked a few books and Ireckon without a doubt it is a ......Bird!!

I reckon you would need about 30 or so for a nice sandwich, not much meat on him. hehehe

Great shot.

What distance were you at?
