For the Birds: Kinglets

Ruby-crowned Kinglet
Photo by Doug Parrott
By Christine Southwick

What’s olive-green, has a crown patch, is constantly moving, and is only a little larger than our North American hummingbirds? If you said kinglets, you were right.

This area has both Ruby-crowned Kinglets and Golden-crowned Kinglets.

Golden-crowned have a striped face pattern. The Ruby-crowned has a plain face with a bold white eye-ring. Golden-crowned: both male and female have erectable yellow crowns, and males have an orange stripe in the center. 

Ruby-crowned: only the males have the usually hidden, erectable red crown. Both kinglets have two white wing bars, with a black smudge below the second bar. Did you know that both kinglets have black legs and yellow feet? Because they are so small, and flit around looking for their bug meals, that field mark isn’t always easy to see.

Red-crowned Kinglet with crest raised by Scott Ramos
Ruby-crowned Kinglets are often found with other small birds during winter, but are most obvious in the spring and fall when they migrate to/ from their higher elevation breeding grounds. While migrating they often search for bugs on lower branches than the rest of the year. During March-April, I listen for a “Cheebe cheebe che “ “Cheebe che”,

“Cheebe cheebe che “ “Cheebe che”.

This is what the Ruby–crowned call sounds like to me. The Golden-crowned Kinglets have a high-pitched single note, repeated. Listen to a CD of local birds, and create a reminder that makes sense to you, and you’ll be more likely to recognize the bird when you hear it.

The Golden–crowned Kinglets are year-round residents here, but because they stay high in the conifers, they are often overlooked during summer. In the winter they also forage lower, and this winter there were many reports of them feeding on the ground, perhaps seeking spiders in leaf litter.

Gold-crowned Kinglet. Photo by Craig Kerns
Both Ruby-crowned and Golden-crowned Kinglets are seasonally monogamous. Both species build their nests in tall trees, usually conifers, anywhere from 40-100 feet above the ground. Little is actually known about their nesting habits. These kinglets lay an unusually large number of eggs for their size, from 5-12 eggs. Large broods usually mean that there is high mortality. It is believed that most of the deaths are from exposure to cold temperature, although Golden-crowneds can tolerate temperatures of minus 30 F for short periods of time.

So, listen for the songs of these two kinglets. Usually you will hear a kinglet before you see it. Then look for a tiny bird flicking its wings, and a quick fluttery flight.

Christine Southwick is on the Board of the Puget Sound Bird Observatory and is their Winter Urban Color-banding Project Manager. She is a National Wildlife Federation Certified Wildlife Habitat Steward, having completed their forty hour class. We're happy that she's sharing her expertise with us about the birds in our backyards.

Evan Smith: Shoreline Councilwoman Doris McConnell announces candidacy for re-election

Doris McConnell
By Evan Smith
ShorelineAreaNews Politics Writer

Shoreline City Councilwoman Doris McConnell announced Friday that she would run for re-election.

McConnell said she would register in a few days with the State Public Disclosure Commission, a step that will allow her to raise and spend money for the August 16 primary and November 8 general election.

Candidates file for ballot positions June 6-10.

McConnell is one of three Shoreline Council members whose terms expire this year. Councilman Chris Eggen announced his candidacy for re-election March 9. Councilman Terry Scott announced March 11 that he would not seek a second term.

McConnell said that she was late reaching her decision because she had been busy with Council business and with community and family commitments.

No challengers have announced their intentions to run against either McConnell or Eggen.

Former Shoreline Planning commissioner Robin McClelland and attorney Jesse Salomon have announced candidacies for the Scott seat.

Positions with three or more candidates appear on the August primary ballot. Positions with only one or two candidates appear only on the November ballot.

McConnell was first elected in 2007, when she defeated former Councilwoman Maggie Fimia.

24th Annual Shoreline Track and Field Invite Saturday, April 30

from Don Dalziel, Director of Athletics, Shoreline School District

83 schools, over 1,000 athletes set to compete in largest all-boys track invite in the Northwest on Saturday, April 30, 2011, 12 noon at the Shoreline Stadium, NE 185 and 1st NE.

Shoreline Stadium will again host many of the best boys track and field teams and individuals from around the state in the 24th Annual Shoreline Invitational. Field events are scheduled to begin at 12 noon, while the first running event is slated for 1 p.m. The 2011 version also features two schools from British Columbia. St. George’s and Sutherland School from Vancouver.

Although it is marked as the 24th annual meet, the Shoreline Invitational has been in existence for more than 30 years. The meet first began in 1972 and continued through the late 1970’s. With the closing of Shoreline High School, the meet shut down as well. In 1985, the meet started up again under the name Thunderbird Invitational, and barring a few missed years, it has been going strong since. The name was changed back to Shoreline Invitational in 1994, with both Shoreline high schools (Shorecrest and Shorewood) supporting the meet.

Ticket Prices: Adults $7, Students W/ASB $5, Seniors and Children $4

You Pick ‘em: It is not too difficult to find some key outstanding individuals that will compete on Saturday. Picking the team favorite might be a bit more challenging. A number of teams will have a chance at top honors, which include, but may not be limited to: Auburn, Bothell, Garfield, Liberty (Issaquah) North Central, Skyline, Wenatchee, and St. George’s from BC. It truly could be any team’s meet, as many teams have the potential of placing multiple athletes in the same event. Last year North Central and Skyline tied for top honors with 51 team points, edging out Federal Way (46) and Wenatchee (44). For North Central it was their second straight team title. All of last year’s top 10 teams return (North Central, Skyline, Federal Way, Wenatchee, Auburn Riverside, Tahoma, West Seattle, Woodinville, and Eastlake).

State’s Best Enter Here: Of the 17 events that exist on the athletic.net state leader board, only three of the state leaders will be in attendance, however multiple events include 3 or more of the states top 10. The hot event to keep an eye on is the pole vault that includes six of the state’s top 10 participants, all with marks over 14 feet this season. Other events with three or more of the state’s top 10 are here: 4x400 relay (6,7,7,10), Javelin (4,7,10), Shot put (2,6,7), 100 Meters (2,6,8), 1,600 (1,2,5), 4x100 (3,5,6). In addition, the meet includes a few non-traditional events (Distance Medley, Sprint Medley), and adds its own flavor as the only meet in the area with a scored Frosh/Soph 1,600 meter run.

Pink Polka Dots 5th Anniversary Art Exhibition and Sale May 22

PPD Guild members selling their art cards
The Pink Polka Dots Junior Guild plans to celebrate five years of funding Seattle Children’s Hospital cancer research with a fundraiser featuring fine art, crafts, and specialties from local artists and guild members. This is scheduled for Sunday, May 22, at the Lake Forest Park Civic Club, 17301 Beach Drive NE, Lake Forest Park, from 2 to 6pm.

The Pink Polka Dots (PPD) was founded by then-sixth graders Sierra Alef-Defoe, Maddy Berkman, and Kelsey Josund after their friend Sydney succumbed to a brainstem glioma, an inoperable brain tumor. The girls created their guild, named after Sydney’s favorite pink polka dot motif, through the Seattle Children’s Hospital Guild Association and have been raising money for cancer research ever since.

The PPD, largely comprised of teens under 17, have a history of involving their community in their fundraising efforts. Their most prominent events have been the sale of art cards made by guild members online and at farmer’s markets, middle- and high-school dances, and benefit concerts, as well as their annual Sydney Coxon Memorial Golf Tournament, which is in partnership with Sydney’s family and local engineering and manufacturing company Intec. To date, the guild has raised over $330,000 for Dr. Jim Olson’s lab at the Fred Hutchinson Research Center.

PPD hopes their 5th Anniversary Art Sale will expand their community of supporters in the fight against pediatric brain cancer. 
“Any chance to reach out to the community is another chance to fund a cure for cancer,” says Josund. “Come, buy some beautiful art, and help us raise money for this important cause!” The May 22 event will feature PPD custom art cards, refreshments and music in addition to the wide variety donated of art, photography, crafts and art glass for sale.

Shoreline City Hall Gallery: Brush with Nature, May 4 - July 29

The Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Arts Council and the City of Shoreline present: Brush with Nature, May 4, 2011 – July 29, 2011, Open Monday-Friday 9 - 5.

The public is invited to an Open House to meet the artists on Tuesday May 17, 5:30-7:00 p.m. at Shoreline City Hall, N 175th St and Midvale Ave N. (date change)

The Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Arts Council and the City of Shoreline present a new exhibit, Brush with Nature, featuring paintings by Fran Holt, d’Elaine Johnson, Jan Pollard and photography by Ellen Witebsky.


Fran Holt
Holt’s paintings stem from a chance encounter with a book of carousel horse photos, discovered at a second hand store and have triggered a two-year art exploration about carousel horses. At first, the paintings were simply a celebration of my childhood spent in Maryland, where the carousel at Ocean City was a great treat. Later, the paintings evolved into imagining life from the horses’ point of view. More about her work can be found here  

d'Elaine Johnson
d’Elaine Johnson
Johnson’s paintings focus on the principals of water. They are concerned with the cycles of fortune, wheels of justice, departures or banishments and returns, regeneration and rebirth. She comments, "My art form ties all life on this planet together in a universal context through the seas, where life began and today connects all as one.” Website


Jan Pollard
Shoreline artist Jan Pollard, like Holt is also fascinated by horses. “I enjoy painting any subject matter that has a rhythm and flow. That is why horses and the human form are particular favorites of mine. Although my work is becoming more and more abstract, living things are still a basis for most of my paintings.”



Ellen Witebsky
Ellen Witebsky
Witebsky’s manipulated photographs of nature around us play into what she sees happening in the world. “We love nature. We revere nature. Yet we insist on tinkering with it, turning it into something not quite natural. This series explores — with a sense of fun and whimsy — our compulsion to make changes to the natural world and the objects in it.” Her work can be viewed here.

In addition, small works by local sculptors will be displayed on pedestals recently purchased with a generous grant from King County 4Culture and the City’s 1% for Art program.

This exhibit runs from May 4 through July 29, 2011 at the Shoreline City Hall Gallery. The Gallery at City Hall may be viewed any time during regular hours, Monday – Friday, 9am – 5 pm except holidays. The Shoreline City Hall is located at 17500 Midvale Ave. N, Shoreline, WA 98133. For more information please contact the Arts Council at 206-417-4645.

The Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Arts Council is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to nurture all of the arts in the community through programs and events, arts education, advocacy, and support for artists and arts organizations.
