- Zonotrichia atricapilla
Golden-crowned Kinglets are tiny songbirds found across parts of North America. They are migratory, with part of the population found in the the Rocky Mountains and other high elevations remaining year-round residents.
Golden-crowned Kinglets typically have two nests of chicks each breeding season. Each nest may have up to eleven eggs - that's a lot of little mouths to feed!
Male and female Golden-crowned Kinglets look alike for the most part. They have dull olive-green bodies, with white and black wingbars, and yellow crowns with black borders.
