Re: Ruby-crowned Kinglet?

Coincidentally I heard the first singing Ruby-crowned Kinglet in my yard this morning in Island Park. Temps are headed for the 60s and the snow is melting fast. Feels like spring.

That looks like a lesser goldfinch. They are in small flocks on the canals here right now.  We have RC kinglets in winter and they are so jumpy, only landing once in a while on our suet feeders.  They have a distinct eyering, too.

This bird visited my backyard fountain an hour ago. Lots of orange on breast, distinctive wing bars, and a hint of brown on throat, with small blackish spots on top of head. I first thought "warbler," but now I think kinglet. Any thoughts?
