More Redpolls for World Bird Wednesday


Around four yesterday afternoon a small swarm (flock of Common Redpolls swooped into Bird Alley In the photo above they perched on the branches of our Manitoba Maple Tree arranging themselves side by side. I was so happy to see these little birds arrive as I haven't seen much lately to focus my camera on.

I'm glad you had these pretty birds to focus your attention on! We're half way through the winter and then the light and the birds will return! ;-)WBW

Pleased to see my old friend the Grey Jay. I have encountered him all across this vast country. He has several aliases as follows; Gorby,Whiskey Jack,and one more I cannot recall. However,always a friend to share a sandwich or treat with, in the bush.
