North Words: Ruby-Throated Kinglet: The little bird with the big, bold and beautiful song
He's a tiny fellow, not much more than four inches long, not particularly colorful, yet sings a song that's sure to delight.
The Sibley Guide to Birds describes his song as "lively, varied, and loud." For certain, emphasis should be placed on "loud," followed by "beautiful."
I'll never forget the first time I heard the song of this diminutive little scrapper.
