Pascal Côté of the Observatoire d'oiseaux de 
Tadoussac reports that over 23,000 Common 
Redpolls passed Tadoussac on Wednesday and 
Thursday this week. Yesterday, in one hour, over 
2000 birds passed for over 30 redpolls per 
minute. They are going southwest. The Tadoussac 
Bird Observatory is just north of the Saguenay 
River Fiord on the north shore of the St. 
Lawrence River about 235 km (145 mi) northeast of 
Quebec City. How far will they go? Stock your feeders.
