Kinglet at the Reservoir

I saw two species of birds for the first time on Monday, while walking around the Chestnut Hill Reservoir. First, the ruddy ducks, traveling in a large flock, some of them with their tails up in the air.

And then two golden-crowned kinglets, tiny blimp-like birds with no necks. I was able to approach them fairly close as they danced around and through the branches of shrubs.
