[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The common redpoll is a small brownish-grey finch with dark streaks and a bright red patch on its forehead. It has a black bib and two pale stripes on the wings. Males often have their breasts suffused with red. It is smaller, browner and more streaked than the generally similar Arctic redpoll, adults measuring between 11.5 and 14 centimetres in length and weighing between 12 and 16 grams. The rump is streaked and there is a broad dark brown streak across the vent. It has brown legs, dark-tipped yellowish bills and dark brown irises.
I made this photo from a hide.

Hallo Zeno,
Leuk om van jou weer eens een foto te zien. Erg mooie foto van deze Barmsijs. Een vogeltje dat je hier in het westen nauwelijks te zien krijgt. Schitterend scherpe focus op de kop en mooie natuurlijke kleuren.
Goed weekend,

Very vivid impression of this bird's interesting plumage, Zeno.
The colours on it are subtle and interesting.

Very nice shot.
