Tiny Bird with a Regal Name

Ruby-crowned kinglet (female or juvenile)
This little bird caught my attention on the Dike Trail while fluttering about between a European spindletree and my head. He was so close that it was hard to get a focused shot and clear identification. Ruby-crowned kinglets pass through during migration and are not seen in as much abundance as their Golden-crowned counterparts.
