Bird from fairy-tale This photography shows goldcrest (Least-concern by IUCN) - which is the smallest species of bird in central Europe. There was a small herd of goldcrests, searching for food (invertebrates) from under the leaves. This bird was sitting for a short moment at the top of the elm tree, in colourful autumn scenery. I took this photo in Bydgoszcz (central Europe) in October.<br />

The Goldcrest is a very small passerine bird in the kinglet family. Its colourful golden crest feathers gives rise to its English and scientific names, and possibly to it being called the "king of the birds" in European folklore. Several subspecies are recognised across the very large distribution range that includes much of Eurasia and the islands of Macaronesia. Birds from the north and east of its breeding range migrate to winter further south.

This kinglet has greenish upper-parts,.. more
