We had a few nice cold clear days in the last couple of weeks, so I got out and had a go at it - I love getting out when it's not raining around here.

1. Golden-Crowned Kinglet

Thank you very much!

They were at the George C. Reifel Migratory Bird Sanctuary, near Ladner BC.

Yes, we have Sandhills up here year round. In the summer, sometimes the family grows to 13 or so. Reifel always has SOMETHING interesting to shoot, at any time of the year!
