These are strange small busy birds, and hard to catch sitting still long enough to get a photo. I noticed this little guy yesterday while making a circle through the Salem Audubon Nature Reserve. Male Ruby-crowned Kinglets have the ability to flash their red crown when trying to impress a female, or when agitated with an intruder. I presume it was the latter in this case, as he spent 5 – 10 minutes running through a series of antics that I can only conclude was meant to have the effect of scaring away the weird guy with the camera. It didn’t work, and he had to eventually give up and fly away.
