You hit the nail on the head, jonny! These guys have been eating me out of house and home!

They've been bringing their buddies, the siskins, all winter too. Is it my imagination, or is the yellow in the siskins getting more intense as winter fades? This is in a warm morning light, but even so, the yellows are really popping!

Nice Captures Ken!....I've only had one batch of the siskens at the bog feeders and that was 3 weeks ago....certainly aren't in the numbers as the polls!.....still learning about birds and apparent "invasion cycles"of bird species....redpolls must have had ideal conditions last spring for as many as we've all seen...

I have far more siskins than red polls here. I love both but they are hard little buggers to get an interesting, pleasing photo of, for some reason. Your bgs as well as Jonny's make a huge difference.

Maybe that is were all my redpoles went. I had dozens hanging around the area here. Now all gone in the last 2 weeks.
