We have a bird feeder in the backyard and these little guys seem to empty it almost as fast as we can fill it. They must have been pretty hungry because they let me get quite close today to snap some pics. I know one of them is a male and the other a female but as I've mentioned before I'm no bird expert so I'm not sure what kind of bird they are. Any ideas? I do love the touch of red they possess. Also, do they shell the seeds before eating them? The seeds seem to be big for their little beaks and I'm amazed that they don't choke.
Okay, I've done my research. These little guys are Common Redpoll finches.
