  1. Traveling along Deerfoot at the Calf Robe bridge I’ve seen these interesting looking birds sitting on the top of the street lights.
    Are they Cormorants?

    • That would be very unusual. Are you sure they are Redpolls and not House Finches? Can you get a photograph?

      • I am familiar with Redpolls as they usually stay the winter at my feeder. The two males look like Redpolls with a strong red cap, no trace of brown that would be expected in a House finch. The females have a slight red flush on the head. The streaks on flank and rump are more distinct than those on the House Finch. I do not have a long telephoto lens so a good photo is not possible. I think I have Redpolls that have decided city living is not too bad. I live right at the western edge of NW Calgary. Thanks, Doug
