Today redpolls galore

...and of every description. Upwards of 200 at a time in the yard. Here are some pics I took this morning after seeing a few very large dark redpolls in the mix. The first pic was taken through a window, so it's not clear, but it does show how large and dark it is compared to the other redpoll in the feeder. Click on the pics for a closer look.

I like that none of them are fighting at the bird feeder, unlike some city birds I know.

Ha! Actually there isn't much fighting going on. Hm.

Whoa, redpolls on steroids! Have you noticed this dark phase/size difference before? Nice pix, Brenda.

Thanks! Ya, we see some big guys most years.
