Nature Through My Lens

Small & Speedy


A pretty little Bushtit (Psaltriparus minimus). One of our smallest birds. These guys weight in at a whopping 5.3 grams. Chickadees tip the scale at 11 grams. These guys drop in for a visit once in awhile. They are very flock oriented. This mornings flock was about 15 birds. They fly in fast hit the suet and are gone again in about 10 seconds flat!

    • Ruth, thank you! They are very cute little birds, always in a flock. According to one of my books they only range in the western states us as far as here! So we are lucky to have them!
