Are you sure that wasn't a golden-crowned kinglet instead of a ruby-crowned? I thought I saw a white band by the eye, and the golden crown has a red/orange "top knot" with a gold border which it raises when it is excited.

These windows attract a fair number of these characters. This one seems threatened, but I've seen a towyhee that seemed to be flirting. It's very funny.
Nothing in the books shows the golden border to the ruby crown. Maybe it's a state of agitation that one doesn't normally see??
