Ruby Crowned Kinglet

This is a new bird to our feeders this year. I am pretty sure we have two of these  little, plump, quick kinglets. One has a more distinctive, tiny dot of red on the top of his head, and the other doesn't seem to have one, at all. The only way I can tell, because they are so quick, is by photographing them and checking the details later.

It is a very windy day at the cottage, so it is hard for this little guy to hang on. I thought it rather funny, though slightly trecherous for him!

Hang on, little bird!

Tired bird finally gave up. Thank goodness the suet contains high protein to help sustain his extra efforts at flying and hanging on today.
