5 April 2019 – Ruby-crowned Kinglet

It’s wonderful when spring finally springs, but that also means a return to dead birds. Today I found this wonderful male Ruby-crowned Kinglet at the southeast alcove, its life cut short en route to its breeding territory. This is the first casualty I’ve recorded at the Noble Research Center since last November. Even more significant, this is the first Ruby-crowned Kinglet I’ve recorded as a window-kill at the Noble Research Center, the 67th species casualty, and the 390th victim overall.
