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.
