The Mother of all Redpolls!

The Mother of all Redpolls!

Clarence-Rockland, Ontario.

The Redpoll on the left is the largest I have ever seen! Hundreds have been coming through my yard and have been gorging themselves at my feeders. At this rate I will have to take out a loan to fund the niger seed feeders!

It has that fluffed up look (with slightly elevated wings)of a bird showing symptoms of salmonelosis

Nice shot Bill. I hope that's not her man on the right. She'll have him for lunch. I'm saving my money this year. Bought only one bag of Nyger seed - no Redpolls, nor Finches this winter at all. I did however splurge on feeding about 20-30 Mallards most of the winter. They keep coming to our feeders.
