Common Redpoll

My Saturday Bird this week is the Common Redpoll (Acanthis flammea). It is also known as the Mealy Redpoll.

This bird is a male due to the reddish tinge on the breast. The amount and brightness of the red on the breast can vary enormously. Photographed from a portable hide (blind) while it searched for wind blown seeds on a snow drift near Punnichy, Saskatchewan, Canada.
