We have had between 70-120+ Common Redpolls and 2 Hoary Redpolls since
0700 this AM. They have been covering our platform feeder and all over
the ground feeding on blown thistle seed. They fly in, feed for 3-7
minutes, suddenly fly off , then come back in spurts, then fly away for
awhile, then back again. This type of behavior all day. Wonderful
sight on a beautiful COLD day.
