As I pushed a wheelbarrow of mulch under the ugliest of our ugly spruce trees, a golden-crowned kinglet combed through the quills looking for insects.  Its bright yellow head-streak and it's utter disregard for me made me smile.  I think it only flitted away when it thought I might collide with it.

  1. I LOVE kinglets. They are so tiny and as you said so tame. They hang out in the conifers on our street in the winter, and I also encounter them often when I'm hiking.
