Ruby Crowned Kinglet
A very small warbler, flitting around high in the blossoms of the Norway Maple in our yard. Tough little guy to get a shot of. I have mis-identified this as a Least Flycatcher, but have been set straight that it is in fact a Ruby Crowned Kinglet. If so, though I may have seen these birds before, this is the first one I have photographed and ID'd (with much appreciated help) as an RCK, and it is a photographic lifer for me.

Hi...its a Ruby - Crowned Kinglet 👍
Really? If so, I totally mis-identified it!! I may have called this bird a flycatcher in past photos here. Thanks very much for setting me straight! I will take it to ID forum for confirmation and will change the title accordingly!!
 
How lovely is this, Bill! The pose, composition and setting are all wonderful!
