Grey Jay, or Whiskey Jack, as we call them.

Common Redpoll. Very small, as in only one and a half inches longer than a humming bird.

Nice little collection. Woodpeckers are cool! I wonder why the red colouration on the Redpoll? I wonder if nature has a reason for that? Almost looks like he's injured with that head wound and blood in his feathers.

Thanks all for the kind words.
As for colouration, I know it is somewhat of a courtship thing, as males have the red breast, along with the red cap, which both sexes have.
