I have a ton of Common Redpolls this winter. Soooo cute!!! They actually outnumber the House Sparrows for once, which I didn't think possible. There's even been a small group of White-winged Crossbills hanging around my huge spruce trees that I've never noticed before. The cats were absolutely transfixed by their rummaging through all the cones on the ground, and if it wasn't for their rapt attention out the window, I may not have seen them myself.
