A King without his crown

It is just a question of time: he is just too young to wear his colourful crest yet !

  2. Love these little birds! You can always hear them, with their distinctive, fast, high-pitched calls before seeing them . . if you're lucky, in the pines.

    Coincidentally, I managed to get quite a nice photo of one of these tiny birds, on the very same day last year! . . what are the chances of that coincidence??
