Yesterday, I thought the surge of finches had disappered with the melting of the snow cover. The niger went virtually untouched. Today, more than 75 redpolls are out to prove me wrong. It is like an anthill out there. There may be well over 75 but it is difficult to count those in the nearby

I've had a flock of around 40 redpolls at our feeders for the last week, but this morning was different. I glanced out after light and there were 300+ redpolls at and below the feeders. The birds brought to mind an active bee hive in mid-summer, very cool. Searching through the flock, I found

Since the snows, I've been feeding upwards of 100 Common Redpolls. They gather all around my lone 4-perch Niger feeder, and empty it every day or two, which makes frequent cleaning easier. Remember, crowds of Redpolls are a treat in January, but by February or March we may begin to see them

We have at least 30 Redpolls here at Blue Heron Point, on the west shore of the lake. Blue Heron Point is just north of Elm Beach. These cute little guys are going through Nyger seed at a rapid rate! And my large flock of Goldfinches are not happy with the competition! Sally and Tim Eller Blue

They're eating black oil sunflower seed too, but they spill a lot of that on the ground, possibly through rummaging for the smallest seeds. I expect the standard sanitization advice is still to wash feeders thoroughly with a 10% bleach solution once a week, paying special attention to crevices

I can finally join the redpolls finally club, as a flock of 10 or so descended on my paltry feeders in Northeast Ithaca. I've had none in my yard so far and none downtown on the CBC on the 1st -- they seem to finally be entering the more urban areas. My birds sampled the black oil sunflower

My flock of Redpolls continues to grow. I'd guess it's up to 30 by now. Donna called her feeders a mob scene. Mine are like that too. I've got hundreds of birds milling around the feeders at once, so it's very hard to actually count a specific species. I also had two male Bluebirds out on
