[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Redpoll ( Carduelis flammea ) Length 13-15cm.
A small Finch with rather variable plumage.
Most Birds can be recognised by a yellowish conical bill, black bid and a red patch on their forecrown. The latter of which is absent in some Juvenile Birds.
Has streaked grey-brown upperparts and pale underparts, streaked on its flanks. In the breeding season the Male has a pinkish flush to its breast.
As a breeding species it occurs locally throughout much of England and Ireland.
In winter it is much more widespread.
Breeds in open woodland but winter flocks mostly in alder and birch often with Siskins.
