  2. Congratulations! You got a couple of lovely images, really outstanding! I’d love to see HR, but it’s probably not in the cards. They are just too rare here in Southern VT.

  3. Congratulations!-terrifc photos of a bird I’ve never seen. I’ve seen Common Redpolls once.It might be difficult for me to tell the difference between the two.

  5. Thanks Larry. They usually hang with Commons and stand out from them by their much lighter plumage

  6. Terrific pictures. For the past two days, I have had the great fortune to have a male and female Hoary Redpoll. In fact they are presently perched in a sassafras tree after feeding on thistle seed. Your pictures do a great justice of these little gems. Falmouth, Cape Cod

  7. Thanks John,

    I haven’t seen any Hoary for a couple years, its great for you to have a couple. I have a lot of Common Redpolls at the feeders but so far no Hoary.

    Cheers, Harold
