All, Early this afternoon, Nicole Weprin, Christine Elder, and I easily observed the Common Redpoll at Patty Mehan's feeding station on Bend's west side.The bird pops up and down between the feeders and small deciduous trees.
One of the highlights of this scene is the study of Lesser Goldfinch plumage and molt patterns, with males and females, adults and immatures, and enough individuals to make it interesting. The first time we visited, a single American Goldfinch was present, but it's mostly about the Lessers.
