Western Golden-crowned Kinglet in Los Angeles

On November 27 of this year (1918), I picked up in my yard in the city of Los Angeles an adult male Western Goldencrowned Kinglet (Regulus satrapa olivaceus). From time to time during the past five weeks, the notes of this species have been heard in the locality, but no view of the birds was obtained until the above date when three times during the morning a small flock of them visited the premises, feeding in oak and sycamore trees. The elevation here is 500 feet above sea-level and constitutes the lowest point at which I have ever observed the species so far south as Los Angeles.
