Friends, this tiny redpoll is peeking around at me and is showing off her stripey sides and wings. These redpolls are very common in our winter season especially near the bird feeders, they love sunflower seeds. In the spring they fly north again. The tiny red patch on top of the head gives the name red poll, this is a common redpoll, but there is also a hoary red poll without the striping on the sides and a frosty appearance overall.I don’t have any images of the hoary—-yet. til Tomorrow MJ
