I had a similar experience yesterday noon, just as the storm was blowing in
-- a small flock of 6-8 redpolls feeding voraciously along with the usual
cloud of goldfinches, purple finches, nuthatches, etc. Also yesterday had
several pine siskins with (?) the redpolls -- and three very large,
evil-looking starlings. No redpolls, siskins or starlings today.
