Apr 16, 2014: Ruby-crowned Kinglet

This Ruby-crowned Kinglet was found foraging on the ground for insects, a behavior I had not observed before.  The cold temperatures and strong winds probably kept the insects from flying.  My presence didn't appear to bother the bird in its quest for food. The "ruby crown" is only visible when the male is agitated. 4/14/14 (Wolf. Oesterreich)
