You might find someone on the list who has both birds at their feeders and try a release there. While both birds might feed at the same sources, they seem to hang with their species. They would probably not remain close friends, but would seek out their kind. That has been my experience.

Subject: [VTBIRD] Junco and Redpoll question

Thought you bird pros could answer: Do these species co-mingle? Need to
release one of each soon  - didn't know if I have to find separate Dark Eyed
Junco and Redpoll flocks. Thanks.
