On Sunday, Jan. 9, 2022, I found a flock of Redpolls. They were seen at Wylie Slough on Fir Island, Skagit County. There were at least 15 birds, probably many more. I have a photo with 7 individuals in one frame. There were two Pine Siskins in the flock, but the vast majority were Common Redpolls. We observed them foraging on alder seeds for about an hour. Occasionally they would get spooked and all fly off, but they returned within a couple minutes. I’m hoping some of the experts on this listserve will view the four images that I posted to my Flickr page. Are any of the photographed birds Hoary Redpolls? There are other photos on my eBird post. Thank you for your feedback !!
