I've never had so many Redpolls at the feeders as I have had this past winter and now spring. 50 to 60 birds at a time is the regular count but many days it goes to 100. Several birders I have talked to are saying the same thing. It truly has been a remarkable irruption by this charming little bird. I was also surprised at the great variations in colour and markings. And don't ask me about how many times I was sure I had found a Hoary! I have uncharacteristically enjoyed this winter because of these wonderful winter warriors. Bless 'em.
