April 21, 2011 Common Redpolls still in numbers.

Common Redpolls are still in the area and this morning we had 50+ at the feeder along with a couple of American Goldfinch and 1 Pine Siskin. Other species visiting the feeder are mainly migrants that include Red-winged Blackbird, Song Sparrow, Dark-eyed Junco, and Common Grackle. Our resident Amercian Robin just finished building its nest and should be laying eggs soon.

Late lingering Common Redpoll continue at feeder.

Nesting season well underway for many species.
