As I headed out the door this cold, blustery AM I was greeted by a
small flock (6-8) of redpolls mixed in with an equal number of
goldfinches feeding on the thistle seed. Only the second sighting of
redpolls at our feeder this year, so I was quite happy. All the birds
must have been hungry after the cold night, because there was a lot of
action (chickadees and nuthatches as well) for 6:15am.
