MA - Hoary Redpoll, a few more pics - 12/30

Hoary Redpoll (right) with Common Redpoll (left) - Gill, Franklin Co., MA. December 30th, 2010. Image taken using Panasonic Lumix DMC - FZ40.

Here's a handful of additional of images of the Hoary Redpoll from December 30th. With no further sightings to date (Jan 3rd, 2011), it's looking more and more like a one day wonder. Even visits from Common Redpolls continue to be few and far between. Pine Siskins on the other hand, have increased again with about 120 birds present at the moment. They're consuming about 15 pounds of nyger seed a week! All images were taken using a Panasonic Lumix DMC - FZ40.

Oh how I love the Redpolls! They have been around my area (Alberta) for quite a while now. Cute things! You have captured them beautifully.
