INTERESTING FACTS

The Hoary Redpoll has very fluffy body feathers that help it stay warm in extremely cold temperatures. It has feathers on areas of its body that are bare in most other birds.
If temperatures get too warm, it may pluck out some of its body feathers. These feathers will grow back in a few days. The species name commemorates the Danish botanist Jens Wilken Hornemann.
A group of redpolls are collectively known as a "gallup" of redpolls.
