Lighthearted Limericks: Ruby-crowned Kinglet

I think we are overdue for a lighthearted limerick, so here is one dedicated to my favorite fidgeter – the Ruby-crowned Kinglet. 🙂

There once was a wee little king
who had flickety fidgety wings

As he flew
about town
he kept hidden his crown 

Too humble to show off his bling!

Although, just in case you were curious, this is what his crown looks like…courtesy of a picture taken several years ago.
