|Arctic (Hoary) Redpoll|
Most were Common Redpolls with about 200 in all but I did find a very pale bird with a pure white rump which I am convinced was an Arctic (Hoary) Redpoll. Black-capped Chickadees were also obvious along with Red-breasted and White-breasted Nuthatches. A few House Finches were also present and Downy Woodpeckers were always in the background. A sparrow on the road turned out to be an American Tree Sparrow.
Coming back to the car park I bumped into a group of thirty spectacular White-winged Crossbills sadly to skittish to get any pictures. A good start and I hope to get out again.
