In the 12 years at my residence, I have seen a Golden-crowned Kinglet in the yard only 3 or 4 times. The first time I had no idea about the species and had to look it up on the Cornell Lab’s bird ID website. On this particular October day a kinglet showed up and was having great success busily locating and devouring insects in the vegetation along the raised flower beds. I was posted nearby with my trusty camera, but the bird was never in clear view. Finally, it landed and gripped a vertical plant stalk in a small clearing. When the bird lingered to survey the dried leaves for tasty morsels, I was able to snatch an image. Good thing because the kinglet was gone seconds later, not to be seen by my prying eyes for another few years.
