We were searching for Common Redpolls in an area of Cress Creek Park that has a row of shrubs and trees along a road. There were some Juncos and Tree Sparrows in an around but not Redpolls. However I did some some movement on the other side of the trees. I went back to the start of the tree line and climbed a small mound of dirt and peered behind the trees and found a field of dead thistle – and a small flock of Redpolls. I carefully edged closer to them to get some shots – here’s one that shows three of them feeding.
