Each year at the end of February or early March the redpolls return to the yard and feast on the nyger seed in the vertical feeder. Here's a photoshoot of this year's arrivals.
Taking up positions on the feeder - "Move over, I'm coming in!"
The staging area.
Coming in for a landing ...
"Hey, what's going on down there?"
Great time for a 'snow bath'.
Just sitting here looking pretty.
"Ha-ha, I have the feeder to myself!"
