The Common Redpoll

posted in: Birds | 0

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.
