Notes on the Hoary Redpoll on its central Canadian Arctic breeding grounds

Arctic Redpoll (Carduelis hornemanni) Science Article 1

abstract

G. Ron Austing and I made the following observations of the Hoary Redpoll (Acanthis hornemanni) during the period of 30 June to 15 July 1972 while photographing birds around Bathurst Inlet Lodge at the mouth of the Burnside River on Bathurst Inlet (66′ 50′ N., 108′ 02′ W.), Northwest Territories, Canada. The site is approximately 40 miles north of the Arctic Circle. Both redpoll species are reported in the lodge log as occurring at the camp, but the Hoary Redpoll was the only one of these species we identified in the field with certainty.
