Crown Me!




No, I’m not talking about the KC Royals, although they are on most Missourian’s mind right now! As we move ahead of the Mets, 2 games to 0, we’re wishing the Royals continued success in their quest for the Crown!

The Bird with the Golden Crown




In January 2011, I found a small group of Golden-crowned Kinglets (Regulus satrapa). This was only my second ever sighting of these kinglets and, until then, had never seen the male kinglet with his bright orange/yellow-centered crown. Out of the group, I only saw one male, but he sure stood out! Unfortunately, he was more […]

Well, after telling everyone I got snookered at my little trip out to photograph a male Golden-crowned Kinglet (Regulus satrapa), I downloaded my images and began the editing process. Lo and behold, I DID capture a male during yesterday’s shoot! These guys are so small and yesterday’s encounter was not a particularly close one; when I […]

More Golden-crowned Kinglets




When I was out shooting the other day, I ran across the Brown Creepers of my last post, but also found a small group of Golden-crowned Kinglets (Regulus satrapa). This was only my second ever sighting of these kinglets (Here are images from my first encounter) and, until then, had never seen the male kinglet with his bright orange-centered […]
