After the rush of the holiday season and as winter deepens, January always feels like a frigid month, and this week's featured bird just loves it - the hoary redpoll is right at home in Arctic conditions, and many of these birds spend their entire lives in the Arctic. Birders in more southern areas can get lucky, however, with winter irruptions that bring these frosty finches right to the feeders.
