Ruby-crowned Kinglet & Phoebe
Yesterday we saw a lovely little Ruby-crowned Kinglet flitting through the fall foliage. These little birds give new meaning to the word "hyperactive" for they move so fast. They constantly flick their wings as they forage in the leaves. The ruby crown is rarely visible but I got a photo showing the little red patch partially exposed.
Speaking of fast moving little things, of course we had to add some photos of our new puppy, "Phoebe". You'll have to pardon us in the coming weeks if we post photos of her, we are totally ga-ga over this adorable pup. But we'll also keep the bird photos coming.
Gotta go give some talks, see you next week. Have a nice weekend. Go see some birds!
