Wolfe Island (Kingston) - The uncommon Hoary in comparison with a Common Redpoll on the right. The hoary is paler overall with dull side streaks, unstreaked under the tail and a small bill, giving the face a pushed in look. Thousands of Common Redpolls have descended from the North and are appearing mainly in flocks of 25-100 in rural areas. Weedy fields or roadsides are preferred. When the snow is deep they should appear at feeders. There are a small number of Hoary Redpolls with them.
Redpolls are annoyingly skittish, often remaining only moments for observation. When they are at feeders they are far easier to observe.
