Default Ruby-Crowned Kinglet

I had never seen one of these before around here. I was shooting him thinking it was some sort of a finch until I noticed this orange crest, which apparently is hidden most of the time.

Very nice catch. I have never seen one either. It almost looks like a little drop of blood or red paint. Very cool.
Happy New Year,
Steve

Thank you Steve. It looks just like a female lesser gold finch. I also first thought it was injured, then realized the patch was too orange to be blood. When I got home, I checked online and found out what it was!

Happy New Year to you Steve!!
