Alabama - unidentified bird

by Nancy
(Lee County, Alabama)

A beautiful bird flew in through my open kitchen window, in south central Alabama, hid behind a door for a few minutes, then luckily found the window again and flew out. It was mostly dark gray-black, with a little bit of yellow in the wings and a beautiful solid yellow crown. His body was slender and long rather than short and plump. My first thought was that it might be a finch but there is no bird of any kind in my Audubon book that has this color pattern, male, female or juvenile. So sorry I wasn't able to get a picture.


Comment:
Possibly a Golden-Crowned Kinglet.
