Redpolls that visit here divide into Common and Hoary. The Hoary's have white chests and backs. I've identified the Hoary's, or at least the ones I think that are Hoary's.

Can't say I've seen a hoary redpoll around here at craftygardener.ca, but then I haven't quite figured out all the differences between redpolls. Nice series of photosReplyDelete
Wonderful images Gary... my winter has been so wet and mild. No snow at all.ReplyDelete
Great images there Gary. What a diference between your dull and sunny days.Good to see the comparison of Hoary and Common.ReplyDelete
sweet little redpolls. love the puffed up dove. :)ReplyDelete
(i have wondered why your blog comes across saying it is published in romanian and google reader tries to translate it...)
Lovely series of photos, the seed pods in a storm, beautiful shaded colours in the background, I enjoy every one so much. Take care in your winter, here we are almost sweltering, not quite 30C yesterday... Cheers from JeanReplyDelete
Lovley birdphotos ,NetteReplyDelete
Lovely scenes! Your redpolls are gorgeous!ReplyDelete
I like that 'crow in the snow' shot. Great series GaryReplyDelete
What beautiful captures of weather, mood and the sweet birds.ReplyDelete
w o w I always love coming to see your photos Gary; the scenery is like out of a movie and the birdlife always seems to be abundant. Now I'm wondering what you wear on your feet to step through that snowReplyDelete
I bet the silence in the meadows with the snow...was awesome.ReplyDelete
Great bird photos Gary
seems you are leaning a bit toward nature art today. :)ReplyDelete
Very pretty!!! I've often wondered just how birds can be so active in the cold like this?!!ReplyDelete
Hmm...Hoary Redpoll...not sure if I have known that one before, but all Redpolls in your series and all birds and cold landscape scenes are lovely. Happy week~ReplyDelete
Beautiful photo series showing :) Hanne BenteReplyDelete
Nice series of photos, Gary. I don't suppose you see a goldfinch this time of year too often. Nice to see some shots of the Hoary Redpoll. We have had a good flock of Common Redpolls in the yard for a few weeks, and occasionally I see a few Hoary Redpolls with them. They're sure taking care of the niger seed.ReplyDelete
Lovely photos of the birds and snow! They always look so cold. You wonder how they manage to survive out there in all that snow and find something to eat or keep warm.ReplyDelete
Not seen any Redpolls this WInter as yet Gary. You have taken some great shots.ReplyDelete
Happy 2013 to you and yours!ReplyDelete
Your world looks very much like mine here - snow and fluffy little birds keeping themselves warm in the best way.
Thank you for your visit my blog!
Terrific wintery captures, Gary! The birds do look cold in all that snow!! Have a great week!ReplyDelete
A winter wonderland up there Gary! Great pics, love the jays, I am still waiting for them to find the feeder I have in the yard!ReplyDelete
Gorgeous little feathered characters in this post! So love the photo of the little blue jay! Cute and quirky!ReplyDelete
Always enjoy viewing your world, much different from my own.ReplyDelete
Nice pictures, a delicious light, I really like all covered with snow. Greetings.ReplyDelete
Lovely post, Gary! The birds are beautiful and I see one of my favorite the Redpoll. Still hoping to see one here. Have a great week!ReplyDelete
How small they are ! How large their world. Thank you for this much enjoyed walk. Please have a good Tuesday.ReplyDelete

Lovely birds and sceneries, as usual, Gary!ReplyDelete
Our snow is gone now, but maybe there is more to come?
Lots of pretty birds in winter wonderland! Don't catch a cold, Gary!ReplyDelete
Have a wonderful day.
A very nice series of photos - but it looks so very cold!ReplyDelete
Another brilliant selection of photos Gary. I wish you'd send some of your snow over to us in the UK.ReplyDelete
Beautiful wintery scenes, Gary. Thanks for stopping by at my blog!ReplyDelete
Looks like you have lots of snow. None down here.ReplyDelete
What a change in the seasons since I visited last. Sorry it has been such a long absence, I am really ,really grateful for you comments in the meantime.ReplyDelete
I love your snowscapes and all your winter birds.
How are you and Boomer doing, I do worry a little since none of us are getting any younger. We have sustained so many losses in family and four legged friends that I'm skittish as a wild horse in a cage.
Happy New Year to you both!
I love the snow because i haven't experienced them. Those birds seem to be feeling cold and sad too. You should see my post in my other blog Pure Oxygen Generators, because i posted it for my blogger friends in the temperate climes. Thanks for your visit in my sites.ReplyDelete
Such lovely winter light. (I have to say that the one mourning dove all huddled up looks like I probably would if I were there!)....The slide show was particularly great this week..I could see the expressions on many of the birds faces.ReplyDelete
It looks so very COLD! Love all the photos! A crow in the snow...the true B&W!:-)ReplyDelete
Wonderful nature shots! You live in such a beautiful area.ReplyDelete
Love the little tree branch meeting of the redpolls!ReplyDelete
Really cool how you caught the snow falling in the seeds too.
Beautiful scenery and wildlife!
Nice pictures - I wish I could see some cold for a few days - too much heat and too many fires here.ReplyDelete
Cheers and thanks for linking to WBW - Stewart M - Melbourne
I smiled how plump the mourning dove; like fluffing up the doona (bed-cover, duvet)ReplyDelete
A nice wintery post. All the best to you and Boomer in the New Year.
Lots of great pictures, especially of the redpoll. Best wishes for the New Year.ReplyDelete
You make winter look so beautiful, Gary!ReplyDelete
Your birds are very beautiful. These photos remind me of why I love winter.ReplyDelete
Beautiful bird shots! The colorful birds against white snow looks great! Esp. I love the shots of Blue Jay and Gold Finch!!!ReplyDelete
