It’s not pretty, but at least I got my first glimpse of Common Redpolls. There was a good sized flock near the entrance of the Shawangunk Grasslands.
They weren’t the most cooperative birds I’ve found, but I’m hoping it will lead to better pictures this winter. Plus, it’s another to add to my list. Can’t complain! 🙂
