Lovely shot! Here's a page of more information about these tiny birds: Link and where you can listen to their call.

I'd seen many of these in one of walnut trees just a few days ago, but didn't know what they were, so thank you for the great close-up!

Super catch of a "flitty" bird. I probably have them around, but am not familiar with their call or contact note. Thanks for sharing & helping us identify them.
