Adult Male Redpoll at Thistle Seed Tray - February 2, 2013
I have found that I can entice many more Redpolls to stick around by building a 3 foot square tray made from screen material. I spread the thistle seed out over the 9 square feet of surface. There have been as many as 100 Redpolls on it at once. It is easy to clean unused or wet seed off every few days which is important in control of disease that can spread among birds that feed close together.
