Bushtit

Small & Speedy

IMG_2467.jpg

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!
