There is currently a Designer Spotlight challenge with a freebie and a requirement to scrap and journal about a special moment. Some people think of when they were married and gave birth and on to less dramatic events. I remembered how it felt to encounter my first Ruby-crowned Kinglets in migration and have a close up male flashing the red in his crest. These are quite small birds dressed in variations of an olive hue and the red crest is only visible (on the male) when he flashes it in display. It really got my attention and I had to know what it was. We were getting interested in birding at that point, but having this experience all by myself and uncovering who it was by myself as well was a very big step. I've used a photo from the U.S. National Park Service to illustrate this long ago event.
