[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Fall migration is almost over here in S. Ontario.
Kinglets are part of the last wave.

The Ruby-crowned Kinglet, Regulus calendula, is a very small passerine bird found throughout North America. It is a member of the kinglet family. The bird has olive-green plumage with two white wing bars and a white eye-ring. Males have a red crown patch, which is usually concealed.
The Ruby-crowned Kinglet is a very small bird, being 9 to 11 centimeters (3.5 to 4.3 in) long, having a wingspan of 16 to 18 centimeters (6.3 to 7.1 in), and weighing 5 to 10 grams (0.2 to 0.4 oz).
The kinglet is migratory, and its range extends from northwest Canada and Alaska south to Mexico. Its breeding habitat is spruce-fir forests in the northern, mountainous, United States and Canada. The Ruby-crowned Kinglet builds a cup-shaped nest, which may be pensile or placed on a tree branch and is often hidden. It lays up to 12 eggs, and has the largest clutch of any North American passerine for its size. It is mainly insectivorous, but also eats fruits and seeds.
