Five Goldfinches and a Redpoll

Daily Image - 22 April 2011 - 5 Goldfinches and a Redpoll

Can you spot the Redpoll? This year, during the Winter all our American Goldfinches disappeared; an unusual occurrence. They were replaced however, with a large flock of Common Redpolls which kept us entertained. Over the past few weeks the Goldfinches have returned, while the Redpoll numbers have dropped. We still get over a hundred of these merry little birds a day at our feeders, along with many other species.
