This morning about 11:00 I had a Common Redpoll on my upper deck.  It was in with a bunch of perhaps 30 A. Goldfinches, along with7 or 8 Purple Finches.  I was just very surprised because before this year, I have never had a C. Redpoll at my feeders.  On Feb. 16 and 18 I had one visit several times, and I believe it was the same individual both those days.  This one seemed to be a different individual, more black on face.  
Yesterday I had about 10 Rusty Blackbirds eating sunflower and mixed seed in my front yard along with 40 or 50 Red-winged Blackbirds, 20 or so C. Grackles, 1 female Cowbird.
Last week a Pine Warbler passed through.  I got good looks at it.
