The redpolls return each year in early March. They are one of the first birds to come home as winter dozes and spring sneaks in. The plants you see here drop countless black seeds onto the snow as the weather warms and I am sure the redpolls can spot them from a mile away. I have read they have an interesting “electric” chirp. I’m not exactly sure what that means, and ours are always too busy eating to bother singing for me. I like our little redpolls.
