Golden Crowned and more

A young Golden-Crowned kinglet who fluttered around me in search of something to eat.

It has been in the twenties here with freezing fog, some light snow and today freezing rain..

Join me over the squiggle for some more photos.

While the kinglet above fluttered about, this little guy was on a tree next to us. Is it a Nuthatch? Update: Per Scott in the comments, this is a Brown Creeper.

Birds

The Western Spotted Towhee. These photos were shot from inside. The Towhee stays in the brush and is hard to see as it matches the fallen leaves. I have not been very successful at photographing them until this morning...through the window.

Thank you to all who helped to identify the the birds. Amazing how so many look a like and sometimes the only difference appears to be their size. :D
