More of the Redpolls

I shared in my post on Monday on <href=”http://www.birdingisfun.com/2012/12/macro-birding.html “> Birding is Fun some close up photos of birds at my feeders. I wanted to share some more of the shots of the Redpolls, which until last week, I had never seen. These birds seem very unshy, and depending on the angle, can look like a goldfinch or a Pine Siskin or a House Finch, until that short black bib and red cap become obvious. I believe all included here are the Common Redpoll, I know I saw some Hoary Redpolls as well but there were some birds that seemed to fit in between and tougher to classify.

I am linking up with Paying Ready Attention’s Blog for WildBird Wednesday – please follow the link below to see other great blogs and photos. Hopefully I am not incurring bad karma by posting Redpolls twice in a row for Wildbird Wednesday but these shots are so much better than last weeks.

    Wonderful shots. The number of finches and similar birds your get around feeders in the US is remarkable.

    Cheers and thanks for linking to WBW – Stewart M – Melbourne
