Lesser Redpoll - December 2013

Pt 1

They are back in good numbers, 18 today. Hopefully the 40+ will be a daily occurrence as the weather turns colder during the winter.

Makes winter far more bearable with these fellas about the garden.

A lovely serie. So much to see at the birdfeeder!

I am looking forward to seeing redpolls but none have arrived here yet.

Kenneth C Schneider said...

They certainly do brighten up the winter!

Lovely little birds Dave... and one that's still not on my garden list.

I'm impressed by your redpoll count (not to say your pictures) Dave. This year I have heard and seen very few but maybe they are on their way now?

Adorable little bird!

Mary Howell Cromer said...

Oh they are so beautiful and it must be such fun to observe their activities!

strange, I had to look up the name Lesser Redpoll but can´t find it in Swedish. The one we have is obviously Common Redpoll. Yours lok more bownish I think.


You are right about the Long Tailed Tit. I live in Sweden. :)

Beautiful little birds and I would find a winter without birds very hard to put up with! Great photos.

Great shots of cute little birds.

Beautiful little birds. They are having red color on their head which looks like cap for them...

...as I said yesterday when I was here with my personal blog admin =Hootin' Anni, I am so impressed with these beauties.

Hi Dave. Lovely little bird. I wish I had them coming to my feeder.

Such little sweet birds all. Sometimes I do miss my winter feeder birds (from back when we lived in Oregon). The birds here really don't NEED me.! But they keep on giving anyway.

What pretty little guys (and gals)! You were right about the post in my post. It's just outside my window and most birds end up perching on it for some reason!

Pat said...

Adding a merry note to the winter landscape!

Adam Tilt said...

I'm not jealous at all Dave...
