American Kestrel gives me a look

 

Northern Pygmy-owl strikes terror in the hearts of the finches.

 

Common Redpoll. It is in the same family as American Goldfinches and Pine Siskins. This is an irruptive species, showing up in big flocks some winters and other years they stay farther north if the food is plentiful. This year I have been seeing a flock of 100 or more some mornings.

It’s hard to believe that December and 2017 are nearly over. I’ve spent lots of time outside in the cold weather and powder snow with dogs. Here are some images that don’t feature dogs.
