    Santa kinglet. How cute.

    I saw one in my birdbath about a week ago at dusk.  The ruby crown looked like one of those old-fashioned ombre Christmas bulbs that blend from yellow to red.  It absolutely glowed…

    They must enjoy cold showers!

    Aw, what a great kinglet photo, Mark! Love the “Santa” idea. And his little tail spread out in the water, so cute. Thanks for sharing.

Sorry, comment time is over.
