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.
