It was a cold and blustery morning at the park, and the canada geese, mallards, wood ducks, and grebe were all going about their usual routine.
With nothing new on the water, and upon the suggestion of new reader Donna Miller, I focused on the bushes and finally managed to catch a couple of still images of the tiny birds flitting around in there.
The better shot is of a ruby-crowned kinglet:
The worse shot, barely good enough for identification, is of a yellow-rumped warbler, I believe. I expected it to be a golden-crowned kinglet, but note the yellow patches at front of wings as well as the crown.
There was no sign of activity at Chet’s duplex. 🙁
As always, I try to curate the best pictures on flickr at
