Common Redpoll

Beauty Within the Thistle

Viewed 11 Times

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.
