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

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
