In my yard today at a newly placed thistle feeder, one male redpoll, the first at my feeders this year. It had a fair amount of white coloring, but I believe it was a common redpoll. I only had a brief look at it as I was already late for work. Nothwithstanding the frost on my windshield this morning, I was surprised to see it given all of the migrating blackbirds over my yard last evening, and with all of the migration reports I've been reading. I think it was no stranger to a feeder, so I am now wondering if we will have some redpolls hanging around for a time given the vast numbers of them we had this winter.
