More Irruptive Species: Common Redpolls

Common Redpoll

A flock of Common Redpolls flew over us on our morning walk. Reports of irruptive species are coming in from all over NH on the NHBirds listserv.... Pine Grosbeaks in Antrim, Nelson and Harrisville, Common Redpolls in Concord and Harrisville, Evening Grosbeaks and Bohemian Waxwings in North Conway.
Maine has reoprts of Bohemian Waxwings, Evening and Pine Grosbeaks, and Pine Siskins. Massachusetts has Bohemian Waxwings, Evening Grosbeaks and Hoary Redpolls. As we said, keep looking, you could find irruptive species just about anywhere in the country this year.

Hi from West Shokan, NY., near the Ashokan Reservoir in the Catskill mountains of upstate NY. We've also seen Common Redpolls and Purple Finches down here. Three Redpolls feeding on a Birch on 11/05/07, and about eight Purple Finches feeding in a Tulip Tree on 11/09/07. Hope to see more unusual species as the winter wears on.
