Bird Photos / Ruby Crowned Kinglet

Last Update: 10/30/2016

We saw this Ruby Crowned Kinglet at Hidden Valley at Cape May, NJ, on October 29th, 2005. The red spot on the top of its head was very bright and conspicuous. The bird hopped around the brush right in front of us for about 30 minutes, posing for many pictures. We saw a few more of these birds during our Cape May weekend, but none were as cooperative as this one.
