Ladies and gentlemen
please welcome to the stage the smallest bird of Europe: the Goldcrest (Regulus regulus).
This very special encounter took place a few weeks ago and I must say, it was awesome.
Three facts about Goldcrest:
* 9 cm in length
* 15 cm wingspan
* 6 g weight (Twenty pence coin weights 5.0 g, one loonie coin weights 6.27 g and Two-cent piece (United States) weights 6.22 g)
An amazing bird!
