Nov 25, 2012: Common Redpoll

Common Redpoll, 11/25/12 (Wolf Oesterreich)
One of the wintering finches is the Common Redpoll. Due to the crop failure up north, this has been a good year to see this species in Iowa. I have seen up to 16 individuals in one group, usually feeding on old flower heads found along the lower Upland Trail. Many times they are in the company of American tree Sparrows.
