Small gray bird with yellow and orange head feathers.

Found this little guy near the house, may have hit a window. Have never seen anything similar and no one I know recognizes it. Found April 10th on Fairlee Creek near Chestertown, Maryland. The photo doesn't show the bright yellow feathers on the head very well.

I finally went to an expert who identified the little guy as a Ruby crowned Kinglet.

Redpoll?
by: Donna

I have one of these guys visiting here in the San Francisco North Bay Area of CAlifornia this week. He is very quick and has repeatedly attempted to fly into one of my windows. The closest I can find in my bird book is the Common Redpoll, but it's habitat is Actic Tundra.

I have one of these birds visiting me in North Bay SF CA this week. He keeps knocking on my window, moves very fast. Closest I can find in my bird book is a Common Redpoll, but their habitat is Arctic Tundra. He sure looks like the one in this photo!

Be sure to place decals on all your windows and space them evenly apart every 4", covering the whole window. If you have a reflective window the decals should be placed on the outside of the window.

Bird can not see glass but do see the reflection of scrubs and trees so they think they are navigating around those objects.

I purchased numerous decorative "wall decals" from my local dollar store and stuck them on all of my windows.

Maybe a goldcrest or firecrest - of the Wren family?
