No. 48 Golden-crowned Kinglet Length 4 inches The Golden-crowned Kinglet is a common winter visitant throughout most of the United States. It comes in mid-autumn and may be seen flitting about the outer surface of trees and bushes. Now and then the gold and orange crown of this diminutive king may be seen as he hangs from some terminal twig. The nest is of soft, green mosses and feathers, suspended from twigs in coniferous trees. The eggs are from six to nine, creamy white and thickly speckled with brown. Classification: Order Passeres. Family Sylviida Scientific name: Regullus satrapa. Range: Breeds from northern United States northward into Canada, and in mountains of United States. Winters from Northern States to the Gulf States. No. 48a Ruby-crowned Kinglet Length 4 1/4 inches This species very closely resembles the Golden-crown. The male Ruby-crown, however, has a partially concealed crest of uniform red, and the female is without any crown patch. The nest of the Ruby-crown is very like that of its relative. The eggs are similar, but not so thickly speckled. Classification: Order Passeres. Family: Sylviida. Scientific name: Regulus calendula. Range: Breeds from Northern States northward to Ungava and Alaska, also southward in mountain ranges of United States. Winters from central United States to Gulf of Mexico
