This bird is tiny; barely larger than a hummingbird. Like the hummingbird, it is active and constantly in motion, flicking its wings repeatedly. The Golden-crowned Kinglet breeds in the canopy of the forest or on the edges of stands of trees near water. They pair up to build their nests together and brood two clutches of eggs each year.
Golden-crowned Kinglets eat mites, spiders and their eggs, and very little, if any, plant matter. The males are olive-green on their backs, with wing bars, and gray below. They have black eye-stripes and white eyebrows with a vivid yellow crown. his is not a bird you are likely to find in your backyard with any regularity, as they mainly stick to the trees.
