Common Redpoll

Common Redpoll, Spruce Run, Hunterdon, NJ 15 Nov 2012
The last couple of days I've had flyover Red Crossbill, White-winged Crossbill, and Evening Grosbeak in the county, but no rare winter finches on the ground.  Today I got a report of a Common Redpoll at Spruce Run and was able to see this bird in a birch tree feeding on the catkins.  It was seen for at least 4 hours in the same tree--maybe a new record for a redpoll to stick in a tree here!

You lucky man! I got my lifer Red Crossbill in Cape May this weekend. The Redpoll would be awesome follow up.
