Hi everyone,
We went to Chappell house on Feb. 13 and were able to have great looks at 3 Hoary Redpolls. We didn't get there until mid afternoon and they weren't coming to the feeder at that time. They were feeding in the birches just north of Chappell house and adjacent to the parking lot. 
There are lots of Common Redpolls and Pine Siskins as well as the regulars coming to the feeder at the back of the house. There is a table feeder at the north east corner of the house close to where the Hoary Redpolls were seen.
A bonus was a Eastern Screech Owl (gray phase) roosting on one of the porch lights under the eaves.
Good luck,
