Golden-crowned Kinglet

Old conifers are a good place to listen for the cascading chatter of the golden-crowned kinglet (Regulus satrapa). The tiny bird may ignore the presence of visitors as it deftly extracts insects from tree bark. Binoculars will help bird watchers identify the male by its orange-and yellow-striped crown. The females and young males lack the orange stripe.
