Saw this Ruby-crowned Kinglet from a distance and could actually see his ruby crown. Then he flew really close to where I was standing.  I have taken many photos of these birds, but have never seen the crown, until today.  So exciting!  Just had to share.  :classic_smile:

Nice, Bama!! It's rare that I get to see their ruby crown, and I've never been able (or quick enough!) to get a shot of one. 

Where in 'Bama are you? I was born in Bama, NE corner on Lookout Mtn.

Thanks Bird Brain!   I'm right across from Columbus ,GA across the Chattahoochee River.   About as far east you can go in AL.  :classic_biggrin:

That's cool!  Wonder if I know the one in PC?  Phenix City.  No "o" in it.  History says the person who named the town wanted it to be different than the mythological bird, but the bird is on lots of signs and things here.  Can you PM me the name of your friend?   I'm curious.  😊

Not familiar with that name, so I guess not.   🐵
