Redpolls 1/6

I have only had a few redpolls at the feeder this winter, so I traveled up to Royalston in search of winter finches. At one feeding station, along a rual road a flock of about 40 were present. I looked carefully with the scope on the outside chance a Hoary Redpoll might be present, but none of the bird I "glassed" were even close. Even so, it was enjoyable and I also heard a few Evening Grosbeaks fly past overhead.

Front and back and back views.

Perched in a Maple.

A nice red breasted individual.

15-20 Pine Siskins are still coming to my feeders at home, but don;t tend to stay too long, while i walked out to the deck I heard a few Eastern Bluebirds nearby.
