  • Common Redpoll Perhaps?

    I think its a male Common Redpole as there is a little more red on the upper chest area. I thought the head looked redder in general so I wasnt too confident with the id. Spotted July 2, 2012 Nova Scotia, Canada.

    Looks to me like a male House Finch.

      I'd agree, Russ. Bill is too heavy fror any redpoll.

        I think the redpoll has a much smaller red head marking too, thanks for the id help.

          How common are House Finches in Nova Scotia? I thought it was a pretty scarce bird that far north.
