Hoary Redpoll...#7

January 2012

A small pale bird of the high Arctic, the Hoary Redpoll is a rare winter visitor to southern Canada and the northern United States. During redpoll invasions, a few paler Hoary Redpolls can sometimes be spotted within flocks of Common Redpolls. ..(The Cornell Lab of Ornithology)

This little fellow was among a flock of Common Redpolls that were visiting Fort Whyte on this day...
