Ruby Crowned Kinglet in acrylics

I love how this little guy  is perched on the branch. 

The Ruby Crowned Kinglet is found in  North America.  They are a tiny bird measuring only 9 - 11 cm in length and weight between 5 - 10 grams.  An interesting fact about this bird is that they can lay up to 12 eggs!! An entire clutch of eggs can weigh as much as the female. 

Ruby Crowned Kinglet measures 6 x 6 inches and is painted on Raymar feather lite canvas panel.

Many thanks to Nigel for the reference photo.
