What a spanking wee bird, similar to our Goldcrests and i bet just as tricky to get one to sit still long enough to grab a photo.

Yes, they are related to your Goldcrest, but our Golden crowned kinglet is a much closer looking version.

They don't sit still. Managed to get these using 3 shot bursts. Tiny little creatures. Thanks for the comment.

We don't have them here very long. Saw him first three days ago.

These are really great pics! Especially the one where he showed his crown, having tried myself I know just how hard it is to photograph these birds. And all with a 200mm lens, you must have been really close!

Thanks for the comment. I was about 10-12 feet away. He was a lot more interested in the window than he was with me.

Yeah, kinglets are not very shy and will come out for a photo, but you have to be patient.

By the way, I really like the first photo. That little fellow was really showing off!
