A Very Little Bird

A very little bird showing me his (or her) crown.  Saw him during the Audubon bird count at my feeder window.  I would not have guessed this bird was anything more than a goldfinch until I caught a glimpse of that fleck of red.  Turns out it's a Ruby Crowned Kinglet.  Pretty fancy for plain old Portland.

Shot through the screen on a low light day.  Post involved levels and unsharp mask.  Not a very good pic and won't make my list of keepers.  Still, it's what's up for my daily pic.
