Compared to last year, it seems I've been getting a lot more red polls at the back yard feeder. Below, just a single individual but at the time really I was using him as a test subject to see if my camera was still working after having not used it for several weeks.)

And the cavalry arrives! A gallup of Red Polls!

Now you need to start picking apart which are Common Redpoll and which are Hoary Redpoll.

I was actually thinking about that yesterday as I was looking through a guidebook. I saw a few of both types last year but this year there have just been quite a bit more, so hopefully that will give me plenty of opportunity to distinguish between the two.
