A Ruby-crowned Kinglet perched on a tomato cage. You can just make out the place on his head that hides the red feathers that gives him his name.

This Rufous Hummingbird really does have two wings. The other one is just moving too fast to see. (kidding)

A male Northern Flicker was on the strut of the tower holding up the power lines. A female Flicker sat nearby and he would drum on the metal strut to make an incredible sound. Everyone loves a drummer!
