Common Redpolls Arriving!

Posted on Jan 21, 2015

I have been very glad to see that Common Redpolls are finally arriving in many locations in the Northeast! Their numbers are not terrific and their distribution is still limited but more and more people have been spotting individuals here and there while out birding, and others have been lucky enough to end up hosting dozens of birds at their home. Have you had any of these friendly little visitors yet this January? We will keep our fingers crossed for a continuing irruption of winter finches with Pine Siskins also starting to show up more frequently once again.
