Redpoll's mate shows up

Yesterday's first, female, Common Redpoll of this fall, was joined today by a male redpoll, at the feeders.   In the photo above the male is seen top-left and the female is top-right.   Sharing this particular feeder with the redpolls is a American Goldfinch, bottom-left, and a House Finch, bottom-right.   Below is a list of 17 birds which I refer to as winter birds, and which are currently showing up regularly at the feeders.

Northern Cardinal                 Red-breasted Nuthatch
Black-capped Chickadee      White-breasted Nuthatch
Mourning Dove                     Common Redpoll
House Finch                         American Tree Sparrow
American Goldfinch              House Sparrow
Cooper's Hawk                     European Starling
Sharp-shinned Hawk            Downy Woodpecker
Blue Jay                               Hairy Woodpecker
Dark-eyed Junco                  ( more to come, hopefully )
