Bill Rapai saw this Golden-crowned Kinglet at the Edsel & Eleanor Ford House in Grosse Pointe Shores, Michigan.
Bill says the Ford House, a museum close to Lake St. Clair, is a great place to visit during the migration season. He used a Nikon D70 and a 70-300mm lens to take the picture.
The hyperactive kinglet can be a challenge to photograph.
