Birds of the Season – Pine Siskins and Common Redpolls

Posted on Saturday 21 February 2009

This winter, the two most common birds that are being seen in and around the Mad River Valley and the State of Vermont are the Pine Siskin and the Common Redpoll.  With high numbers of each species traveling in fast moving mixed flocks, it is at times difficult to tell them apart.  This shot from Mae Mayville of Essex, taken yesterday, gives us a nice look at both species.
