2015—Kinglet

This little ruby crowned kinglet has been enjoying the nectar at the hummingbird feeders, much to the chagrin of the hummingbirds who stage unsuccessful attacks against the kinglet and its mate who aren’t much bigger than the hummers.  This has been going on for a few weeks and I thought these little birds were the lesser goldfinches until I realized when I looked closely at the bird in this shot that the little interlopers are kinglets.  What this close up shot tells me, though, is that I need to clean my feeders and that I need to adjust the perches so they align better with the feeding stations.
