Golden-crowned Kinglet! - 17 Feb 2013

Robin and I picked up some Sonic for lunch and headed down to the Boat Launch at Lake Erie Metropark.  Just as we pulled into the parking lot I spotted this lovely little Golden-crowned Kinglet foraging at eye level in the pine tree that's next to the picnic benches.  Sunlight was perfect, and the bird was cooperative for some gorgeous pics.

Nikon D300s, Nikon 300 mm f/2.8 VRII, 1.4x TCII, Aperture-priority, f/8, ISO 400.  Exp Comp = -0.7, Shutter Speeds ~1/1000 sec.

Suddenly I am wanting to fast-forward to May, and spend some quality time on the boardwalk at Magee Marsh.  Start planning now for the Biggest Week in American Birding!
