[IBLE] Common Redpolls-Pocatello

Hey folks,

Today I encountered 4 Common Redpolls around Pocatello, one individual this
morning and a flock of three this afternoon (see below for specific
locations). Notable finds for the region this time of year and it could be
a good winter to see more northern finches. It was predicted this year that
the redpolls’ desired seed crops would be low further north but I did not
expect to see them. I also had a single Pine Grosbeak just outside of town
yesterday, at the top of China Peak!

For C. Redpoll photos, an audio recording, observation comments, and
specific locations take a look at the eBird checklists here:



Good birding,
