Common Redpoll

Common Redpoll Carduelis flammea

We're not quite sure how this individual came by its unique "hairdo" but it did not seem to change at all and the feathers never slicked down. The temperature was well above freezing so if ice was the culprit it would have melted. Perhaps somehow the bird came into contact with some kind of sticky substance.
