These Golden-crowned Kinglets gave me a hard time.  They were foraging through the woods on campus, moving constantly through the brush.  It was difficult getting a good look at them.  I chased them for a long way into the woods before I was positive that I was seeing the yellow crown and eye white eye stripe.
