Throwback Thursday

Male Common Redpoll

Throwback Thursday travels back to Saskatchewan, Canada in the late 1990s.

I found a small flock of Common Redpoll feeding on seeds blown onto a snow drift. The drift had formed at the end of a row of granaries so I put up a portable hide (blind) to photograph the birds.

Thanks Hannah. We get them in this part of Ontario some winters. We’ve not had any this winter but a few years ago we had dozens around the feeders and yard. They’re what’s called an irruptive species meaning an irregular migration dependent on food supplies and weather.
