New bird!

How's this for getting along? This morning, a chipping sparrow shared the suet feeder briefly with one of our resident tufted titmouses (right).

Talk about hard to photograph! This ruby-crowed kinglet--our new species!--spent the winter with us. I've been trying and trying to get a good picture of him, but he's FAST.
HEY, this a NEW BIRD for our yard, too! Cool! 
P.S. This little guy flitted right up to James several days ago, while he was filling up the suet feeder. The kinglet even landed at his feet and chowed down on suet that had fallen on the ground. Friendly little fellow!

My very favorite wingless he bird, of course. :-)

Wonderful shots of your new bird but I'm appreciating the last couple of photos equally, because the patience and care shown for even the simple task of loading suet into a feeder is very telling.It shows a deep and abiding love for not only the work but the reason for doing the work. Thanks for sharing!

Oh, we do love our wild neighbors!

These are beautiful birds! I guess the kinglet knows a friend when he sees one. Too cool.
