A flock of about 30 Common Redpolls continues to associate with the growing Snow Bunting flock on Mt Pleasant Rd this morning. They all were in the weedy field opposite the communications tower, both around 10:30 when I first saw them and around 11:30 when I returned. Basically the same spot as I saw them 2 days ago. Tip for spotting the redpolls: look for the birds that are clinging to the plant stems...that would be the redpolls, whereas the Snow Buntings are mostly foraging on the ground.
