A few bloggers have recently been posting about kinglet experiences of late so I thought I'd throw mine out there as well. Walking to Chicago's Field Museum a couple of weeks ago I spotted a family peering intently into some pines. On approaching the father pointed out a small bird flitting about making a high pitched noise from time to time. In Europe it'd have been goldcrest but here we were looking at a remarkably similar looking bird - Golden-crowned kinglet.
So cool to see two such similar birds halfway around the world from each other.
