I spotted a Ruby-Crowned Kinglet in the window feeder this morning around 10:00 am. With the metal screen in the window, I can get within two feet of birds if I am extremely quiet.
This is the second time I have identified this bird. The first time he was flashing his psychedelic ruby crown, a few years ago.
Today, this male was enjoying the sunflower seeds. They winter in Texas but do not nest here. Unfortunately, I didn’t get a photo. Here are a couple from the web.
