Ruby crowned kinglet.

A really fast little bird, it was tearing through the hedge snapping up food.
It paused just long enough to get a reasonably good shot.

It bounces through the pond but doesn't linger for a bath.

Regulus calendula 
The Ruby-crowned Kinglet is a tiny bird that lays a very large clutch of eggs—there can be up to 12 in a single nest. Although the eggs themselves weigh only about a fiftieth of an ounce, an entire clutch can weigh as much as the female herself.
