Posted by indigobunting in Uncategorized.

Yesterday, after my last post, I saw a common redpoll at the feeder, hanging with a flock of goldfinches. It seemed there was only one. This morning, there was a whole flock. But yesterday’s loner pushed my personal count to 115.

I want to do this, some time when I know I will be going in all four directions away from my house (I went N and E this year, but I’d need more W, definitely). I don’t think you should be disappointed.

You are such a knowledgeable, impressive birder that I hesitate even to leave a comment. But I have something to share about redpolls. Many years ago, when I surprised myself by successfully hand-taming the birds at my feeder, a migrating flock of redpolls showed up in the spring. They observed me out in the yard, with evening grosbeaks on my shoulders and head (and sunflower seed in my hands), and then decided I must be a safe feeding station. When the grosbeaks were done, the redpolls moved in (on) for dinner. I found this remarkable.

That is remarkable, Susan. I’ve never even seen a redpole.

That’s a lot of birds, IB. Don’t be disappointed.

Am speechless…

Anybody who isn’t impressed by such a list is a birdbrain.
