Details below. I believe this is shaping up to be a good irruption of Common 
Redpolls, based upon the sightings well North of us, as well as around coastal 
US regions in the Northeast.

Good birding!

Common Redpoll  1     This bird was in a crabapple tree at the entrance to 
Dryden Lake Park, associating with three Chipping Sparrows and two Dark-eyed 
Juncos. I was pleasantly surprised to have this individual be the first to 
observe when scanning the tree with my bins. Petite finch; stubby yellowish 
bill, black chin patch and lores; dark red forehead cap, dusky streaked sides 
and undertail coverts, forked tail; no pink tinge to breast feathers; probable 
adult female or first year female. No vocalizations heard.
