The Trills of the Common Redpoll

Tis' the season of winter birds!  Yes, here we go again!  But with the colors and sweet sounds of spring, summer and fall behind us ... the trills from a flock of winter birds, like those of the Common Redpoll (Carduelis flammea) can cut through the solitude of a winter day and and certainly warm the atmosphere with their 'chatter!'  We have large numbers of Common Redpolls in our yard that constantly dash in and out of our trees and down to the bird feeders.  Don't worry ... I have about 12 winter birds on a list that I am hoping to see and capture!  ... Only 11 more to go!!!  LOL!
