Common Redpolls in Bird Alley




 These sweet little red-capped bird, Common Redpolls are always very welcome in Bird Alley.  I didn't see any last winter so it is a treat to see them appear this winter. there doesn't seem to be much variety in their appearance this year as yet. I have been watching for one with a really outstanding rosy breast, but as yet haven't seen any .  Of course I am always watching and hoping to see a hoary Redpoll.  I have had such visitors before so I shall be watching daily for such an occurance.  Its cold here this morning.  My oudoors theromometer reads at -20 degrees C.  Brrrr.!!!!! That is too cold for me as I plan on going out today to rescue my bird feeders that are almost all covered with snow. But not to worry birdies, I still have two feeders near the house that can be refilled by reaching out my sunroom window.

-20! That's too cold for me, but your birds are lovely! Maybe it's a good trade-off for a little while.
