Day 5.117: A royal visitor-let

While we were eating a few days ago, this little bird caught Exile #2's eye:

She was right to be curious. It's a ruby-crowned kinglet - just passing through from its winter home in the south to its breeding grounds north of here.

We saw one once before, along with its golden-crowned cousin at Five Rivers around this time of year, but this is the first time at home - and the first one for several years.
