Hoary Redpoll

Red_poll_1

Sitting in the tree-tops with a group of Pine Siskins and other small song birds was a beautiful looking small bird we decided was a female Hoary Redpoll. She was at the southern edge of her winter range and it was a pleasure to get a glimpse of her before she returns to the high arctic tundra for the summer.

    1. We had never seen one before this encounter so it was a lifer for us. A very attractive little birds. The males are similar except for perhaps a touch of red other great feathers.
