The Return of the Redpolls

All of a sudden my bird feeder is full of Redpolls and there’s not a chickadReturn of the Redpollsee or a nuthatch in sight!  Being irratic migrators, you never know for sure when they’ll show up, but they come in flocks when they do!  The subject of my painting is a little female, since she lacks the rosy colouring the males sport on their breast.  Now the only problem is to keep Possum from turning them into hors d’oeuvres.
