One day I drive to multiple locations around town in search of avian subjects to photograph only to come back with an image of a feral pigeon…the next day I wake up to 100 redpolls invading my feeder setup right in my backyard!

    Sometimes you never know….To have them drop in on your backyard is a special treat!

  • Yep! Just stocked up on nyger seed to hopefully keep them around :-)

    Beautiful image here Daniel…love the perch and falling snow.

    I’ve had as many as 50 so far…just bought another 20lbs of nyger seed :-(……… :-)

  • Thanks Gary! On that day I had thirty just on the ground eating dropped nyger seeds. My apple trees were covered with others waiting. That was the only day I had so many…they have dwindled down to about 10 per day since.
