Waxwings and Redpolls

16:th of December 2008
A period of snowfall and a new influx of Fieldfares and Waxwings are the latest events in this dark period of the year. Redpolls seem to be building up for a good winter too, meaning chances to find Arctic Redpolls of course.
Yesterday I saw 3 Redpoll flocks just around town and that´s also where the Waxwings linger on; in the gardens and parks with all berry-bushes and fruit-trees. Such gorgeous birds. I just love their sound.
Bullfinches have also started to appear at the feeders... finally. Meanwhile, enjoy a good looking male Redpoll taken by Niclas Lignell at one of our feeders. See more of his own excellent pictures on his own photopage.
