The common redpoll visits the feeders quite frequently. Redpolls belong to the finch family
This little bird is about the same size as a goldfinch, around 12 or 13 cm. long. Sometimes they are commonly mistaken for house finches or pine siskens.
It has the little red cap and the male has a reddish section under the chin. You can also see a bit of red just above the tail.
They like the black oil sunflower feeder and also the nyger feeder.
