Jason sent me this little guy. He was just walking down a street in Langley, when this little fellow decided to join him. Gold Crowned Kinglets aren’t rare, but they are elusive. I’ve seen a couple in my yard, but have yet to get a photo. When I see a little brown speck flitting in the bushes, I get my camera on it. They all look the same from a distance, but you just never know until you can get a close look. More often than not it will be something that you have seen a million times. But you never know.
Ha! Thanks to Albert for identifying this friendly little bird.
(Can I call myself an official “Birder” now??)
