Common Redpolls at the Summerfest Amphitheater in Milwaukee Wisconsin on December 8, 2020

Birding along the lakefront in Milwaukee near the Summerfest amphitheater I came across some recent reported Common Redpolls. They were a large flock of 50 plus birds. They fed on flower and weed seeds along the south end of the amphitheater. They did not hang around long while I was there but long enough for a couple of shots through the cyclone fence. No other special birds to note for the morning out. It was a chilly cloudy morning with temps starting below 32 degrees with a steady wind. Images were taken on December 8, 2020.
