I've never had so many Redpolls

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.
