2nd Ruby-Crowned Kinglet

This was our second Ruby Crowned Kinglet to see at the bird banding station. It was so red on the head that you could even see it from far away and that's rare. The research assistants were surprised. They stick around in winter, so they don't migrate. They eat anything they can find. The feathers felt soft on the 2nd Ruby Crowned Kinglet.When I went to release it, it stayed with me because it thought I was warm, even though I didn't feel warm.
We took a lot of pictures. Here they are.
We've put the call up before, but we are going to give it to you again because birds sure do have a lot of calls. Here it is.
