NOTE:
Almost like clockwork, every 2nd year we see and play host to the Common Redpolls...  In 2002 January through into April, we were entertained by often more than 75 Common Redpolls at a time.  We had to put up a second niger seed feeder (they will hang upside down at the niger feeder, just like the Pine Siskins and American Goldfinch!!!)  For a couple weeks, that year, the House Sparrows moved out of our yard, feeling too overwhelmed by the feisty and not very shy Common Redpolls.  We keep careful watch on the flocks that we do see, hoping to someday see the much less common Hoary Redpoll in and amongst the flocks!!!  Our fingers remained crossed.  It is too bad we don't see these gregarious little birds more often than every two years!
