Ruby-crowned Kinglet (Regulus calendula) 1 Very small, olive-colored
Passerine; short tail and small, petite black bill, two wing bars, second
being more prominent. Primaries, secondaries and retrices dark and
outlined yellowish. White spots in front of and behind eye; spot behind
the eye much more obvious. Bird was foraging with two Blue-gray
Gnatcatchers and was constantly, nervously flicking its wings as it foraged.
There were two previous early records of this species (12 September 2017)
reported and photographed by Corey McCaa offshore in Louisiana waters, so
perhaps these records are indicative of an early movement this Fall.
