Apologies for all the bird pictures of late. But I’ve had a lot of birding moments since the new year began, so they dominate my thoughts.
This one was sweet. I visited Pedernales Falls State Park today, which has a wonderful pair of bird blinds. While I was inside one of the bird blinds, a little ruby-crowned kinglet hit the roof and fell inside the bird blind. He was stunned, and stuck in a narrow opening in the wall. I picked him up and set him on the floor. He eventually got his wits about him again and flew off.
It is rare that I can even lay eyes on these guys long enough to identify them. So I enjoyed getting an up close look at this little one. I had my telephoto lens on my Olympus, so I had to take this macro shot with my iphone. So tiny!
