Golden crowned kinglet, Rondeau Provincial Park.


Another yard bird this fall. Ruby crowned are more common but we have had a few golden crowned.

Regulus satrapa

Each of the Golden-crowned Kinglet's nostrils is covered by a single, tiny feather.
The tiny Golden-crowned Kinglet is hardier than it looks, routinely wintering in areas where nighttime temperatures can fall below –40° Fahrenheit.
