Ruby-crowned Kinglets at Lake Lotus Park, 11/16/2012
Yesterday Lake Lotus Park was pretty slow, at least until I made to to the open area just past the "octagon" (as you go counter-clockwise around the path). That area was filled with many passerine birds, including Yellow-rumped Warblers, Palm Warblers, a couple Common Yellowthroats and a Black-and-white Warbler. It was also fun to see my first Blue-headed Vireo of the fall. But there were about five Ruby-crowned Kinglets there, and a couple of them let me get my first presentable photos of the species. I'm still not terribly happy with these, but thankfully I'll be able to work on improving them all winter, and Lake Lotus Park appears to be the place to go for that, at least for the time being.
