Common Redpolls - December 30, 2007

Common Redpolls at Findlay Township, Allegheny County, PA
 
There is no doubt that the winter of 2007-2008 is shaping up to be an excellent one for winter finches in Pennsylvania, particularly for Common Redpolls, which seem to be appearing everywhere across the state in late December. Allegeheny County is no exception, where I have personally found two flocks of redpolls already this season, including a group of 35 in Findlay Township, not very far from the famous Imperial Strip Mines. Below is a picture of three of these thirty-five I made on the 30th of December. What else might this winter bring? At this point, with every nothern finch other than Pine Grosbeak reported somewhere in PA at least once already, anything seems possible.
