Redpolls

4 04 2013

When up in Whitehorse, I had the chance to shoot a couple of Redpolls. It was my first time seeing this lovely little bird. I’m glad I could get a decent shot! Turns out that the first is a Common Redpoll, and the second a Hoary Redpoll!

While visiting Whitehorse, we took an afternoon to check out the Yukon Wildlife Preserve. They have various arctic animals in large enclosure areas, making for some decent photo opportunities….

It’s an interesting place with a noble mission of trying to educate people on the needs of the arctic animals and how the changing world affects them.
