Goldcrest and Tenerife Goldcrest
Flitting around, active, searching...
Cute little bird,
Like a firecrest,
Except with an eyering.
It is the smallest bird in Europe.
Females are like the firecrest, they lack orange on their crests.
The Tenerife is similar, but with a longer bill,
Blacker forehead, reduced white on tertials (third group of feathers)
And a deeper pink-buff on its belly.
A/N: My Birds of Europe book says that females barely have any orange sometimes, but it's rarely seen in the field.
