Common Redpoll / Sizerin flammé
Carduelis flammea

The winter of 2010-2011 saw an important invasion of Redpolls across much of Eastern North America. While they spent much of the winter hanging out at our feeders, they were also absent for protracted periods. This spring individual was beginning to get lots of colour, perhaps in preparation for nesting season far from our part of Canada when it showed up at home (more than almost any other of the 100 or so individuals present at that time), likely on its way to parts further north.

Bojour Denis,
Quel adorable oiseau et quel regard tendre, on lui pardonnerai tout..
De belles couleurs et une très belle présentation décentrée. La netteté pourrait être encore améliorée, mais l'ensemble est très, très plaisant.
Un grand merci
