Ruby-crowned Kinglet.

14 posts in this topic

These are so-o-o-o sweet. And there is nothing sweeter than a ruby-crowned. The light makes them wonderful.

The photo is not a Ruby-crowned Kinglet but instead its a Orange-crowned Warbler. Nice photo.

You may be correct Mike and if so I stand corrected. There's a lot of similarities bewteen them including their phyical size and also foraging habits.

Dang Hoagie,

Why don't you just shatter their hopes and dreams while you're at it?

Might as well call out their Mamas too.

Raider4ever, your post is confusing to me, are you joking around or are you disappointed that Mike H. is helping to make an accurate identification of the bird?

ShawnZ,

Ya got me, yes I am dissapointed Mike is going out of his way to do what he does better than anyone I know, ID birds. Either that or....Mike and I go back to elem. school. We played against each other in high school. We were roomates at MN-Crookston, we were best men at each other's weddings. We are both from the same 'hood and I just found out he is registered on this site so I was just giving him a shout-out by "doggin' him". The game has gone on between us since time began.

Stu, I agree with Mike on the ID, not that he needs backup from me. He is the pro on bird ID.

That final image in the first series in particular is excellent, with the live protein ready to be swallowed, and the taut pose in the image you added later is excellent. Nice light as well. gringrin

If you saw a kinglet next to an orange-crowned warbler, you'd defininitely notice a size difference, with the kinglet being smaller. I also seem to recall the r-c kinglet has an eye ring that appears more broad than the o-c warbler.

I totaly appreciated Mike coming to the plate with the correct ID!!! wink

Although I have spent much of my life in the great outdoors, I certainly do not profess to an expert when it comes to bird ID.

    • I tried to purchase the screws yetti uses from Fastenal who is their vendor for the screws. They are only sold in large reels designed for a self loading screwgun. I finally called Casey at Glacial lake docks where I purchased my yetti and he sent me out the amount I needed. They work great to add additional fir strips. The plastic used to tie them together comes right off as you screw them in. Hope that helps. 
    • Sorry...was wrong on the specs.   Manufacturer is Core Ice.  It was 1450# for a 12' and 1250# for a 8'.  
    • I believe you want to use a zinc coated or galvanized steel according to the charts.  I'm sure someone will come along to correct me
    • In the back room there is a company that is using bonded foam panels (similar to garage door panels, but really clean looking), and had weights of 1250# for a 12' and 1450# for a 16'.  Aluminum trailer frames that could convert to a skid frame.  Can't recall the name.  I'm sure they were spendy, but I can see a concept like that going somewhere for the hardcore fishing crowd.   Yetti, Firebrand, Big Bite, and Glacier all had really nice display models.      Lots of campers (disguised as fish houses) out there at prices that make me want to jump into the business.  I was in two different manufacturers houses with prices well over $30k that had wire nuts for connections.  That is going to be a fun adventure for someone 2-3 years down the road when they find out their manufacturer saved $15 on their wiring.           
    • Thank you for all the help!  Ended up going with the Marcum VS485C.  After some research, there were a few other Marcums that were on the list (825 & 625), the Aqua Vu HD, and the Pan Cam.  The mini cams from all manufactures weren't what I was looking for, but they are cool and do have their place.     After seeing everything in person, I think the Aqua Vu HD had the best camera/screen.  The Marcums were a little bit behind, but the 825, 625, 485, and Pan Cam had similar real life clarity.  The 485 won out because of the $300 price point vs the others at $450-700, and was almost identical for resolution, other than the HD.
      I honestly think these cameras are all about 5+ years behind in technology in comparison to the broader camera/tv screen market.  Running off a 7-9ah battery is probably one of the limiting factors.  Another may be the cold.  The main reason (IMO) is that the manufacturers are hoping they can incrementally rape us by trickling out technology each year, similar to the computer manufacturers of the 90s/early 2000's.  For the price of a middle of the road underwater camera, I can buy a Chinese made 50" TV (these all have Chinese made 5-8" screens) and a GoPro or Sony Action Cam (which is 10x's the picture quality).
