For some reason, the last paragraph to my posting a few minutes ago didn't
show up on neither ABA's BirdMail or Surfbirds message board collection
sites. Maybe if you actually subscribe and receive individual Tweeter's
postings, you to the whole thing, dunno. Somebody, please let me know as it
would be good to know what I might have done that I should do differently
next time. In any case, here's the rest of the redpoll message, kind of
important and presumably helpful actually for any would-be chasers :-))

I might also add, quickest easiest access if you're going just for a shot
at the Redpolls, enter from SE 4th St where it dead-ends at the NE entrance
gate, 5 blocks west of 156th Ave SE. Walk west for about 50 feet and
just past the 5-paneled wire mesh fence on both sides of the path, you will see
that one lone tallest white-barked birch 50 feet off to the right (north).
There are some shorter alders there too, but the Redpolls seem to favor
the birch while the Pine Siskins when present favor the alders. The
Redpolls are awfully quiet and have been every single time, so can be easily
overlooked if they are there. There are lots of birches scattered throughout
the entire length of the Lake Hills Greenbelt, so there's is lots of
potential for feeding if it is the birches that the Redpolls favor over the alders
and thus don't seem much to associate with Pine Siskins at all, at least
so far.
