I think I saw a couple of golden crowned kinglets, and just now a dark butterfly flew by my window. I think it's a mourning cloak.

I photographed a golden crowned kinglet a few days ago, but haven't got to deal with the photo yet.

No problem dealing with the capture of a kinglet, but dealing with the photo itself; well, that's another matter. I love it. It's the fall that'll kill you!

The golden crowned kinglet hasn't returned for me to photograph. Still in class. Would you settle for a couple of house finches? I really adore them, the couples will always stay together. She is not happy with him today for some reason.

Such a handsome well-rounded white throated.

I've seen some House finches hanging around someone's house down the street but not for ages up at my end.  Even that sighting was over a month ago. I've heard White-throated sparrow calls lately but I have not yet seen one. I'm hoping that something new will show-up in the backyard soon. I may need to wait until the last week of April before that happens. I came across a photo taken with my Canon G9 a decade ago and it reminded me of the bonanza of birds that were visiting in those by-gone days. A White-throated sparrow, an Eastern Towhee and a Fox sparrow all at about the same time. Then a thrush and a Thrasher. Stuff like that just doesn't occur anymore.

That was the whole trip worth of birding in Pelee you described there.
