Golden-crowned Kinglet Feasting (2008-11-01 10-52-10a)

Golden-crowned Kinglet – Order Passeriformes : Family Regulidae : Regulus satrapa

The photo was taken at Montrose Point, Lincoln Park, Chicago, IL. using a Panasonic DMC-FZ50 with an Olympus TCON-17 tele-extender. It looks like he’s munching on a large fly or bee. I used ACDSee Ultimate 10.2 to adjust the lighting, sharpen and boost the contrast, vibrance, saturation and clarity.© 2008 Gary J. Sibio. All rights reserved.

  1. Such a cute bird. Looking at the photo makes me smile. I know I have never seen one before. I did not get a chance to run out with my camera today but from the window by which I write on the PC I saw a big bird with huge wings circling here in Florida and I thought it might be a hawk. Perhaps next time I can get a pic of him. Looked fantastic against a blue sky.

    • We get them in wooded areas during migration season. Besides the Golden-crowned there is also a Ruby-crowned Kinglet where the spot on the top is red. Unfortunately I don’t have any photos of them. Both species are hard to photograph because they refuse to sit still.
