Late yesterday afternoon, after an all day rain.
And, the birds know it. They have been flocking to the feeders all morning.
http://vermilonriverwildlife.blogspot.com/ stops by today, because he is very used to seeing these birds, and should be able to tell me for sure if these are female common redpolls. The bird hanging on to the middle of the feeder is the one that makes me think that this is what I have. If you click on the photo, you should be able to see the red spot on the top of her head better. Heh, she doesn't appear to be too happy with the goldfinch above her, does she?
