Golden-crowned Kinglet

    Related Articles


    Restless, flitting movements and a very small size are good signs that the Golden-crowned Kinglet (Regulus satrapa) you are looking at is a kinglet. Scarcely pausing to perch, kinglets glean small insects and their eggs from leaves and bark.

    In its flittering flight, the Golden-crowned Kinglet utters a high, thin ssst, which is often repeated several times as a phrase. The species can be found in coniferous forests, other forests, and thickets (during winter migration).
