Lesser redpolls feeding on birch catkins


Lesser redpoll, 29 December 2014

This afternoon, a small flock of lesser redpolls landed on the small birch tree in the backyard behind our balcony.

They fed on birch catkins, one of their favourite dishes.

Briefly, a blue tit kept the lesser redpolls company in the tree.

Yesterday morning, a blue tit visited the feeder on the balcony.

A bit later, a female blackbird looked for food beneath the feeder.
