Hi,
This article is about a very lovely species:
FIRECREST - REGULUS IGNICAPILLA

 


The common firecrest (Regulus ignicapilla) also known as the firecrest, is a very small passerine bird in the kinglet family. It breeds in most of temperate Europe and northwestern Africa, and is partially migratory, with birds from central Europe wintering to the south and west of their breeding range.
