|Two Redpoll in the garden late this afternoon.|
I woke up expecting this Crossbill that fed till dark yesterday to still be here but it was magically replaced by Siskin. With the numbers from 2 in the morning peaking at maybe 6 or 8? The feeders buzzed at dinner time putting on a show for our Birdwatcher B&B guests with the 2 added Redpolls stealing the show.
|had to stop the car and take a photo of this on the way to the shop today.|
The modeling in the back of the neck? rounded wing coverts? short thick bill? and whats with that Eye and face? legs, etc. I find it doesn't fit neatly into any one species according to the book info.
