Golden-crowned Kinglet 11/22/17

Kinglets are the smallest of all songbirds and come with twittering perky personalities. They are difficult to photograph on account they seem to never stop foraging for insects and spiders to keep their metabolism going. How they manage to find enough to eat during the long New England has always been a mystery to me. They come in 7 species around the world, 2 of them found in North America including the Golden-crowned. Males have a reddish streak in the middle of their yellow crests which can be erected. Kinglets are not warblers.
