Irruptive Bird Common Redpoll by Christina Rollo. Close-up portrait of a colorful male Common Redpoll (Carduelis flammea), perched on a branch during winter in central NY, USA. Common Redpolls are irruptive birds, meaning there is a sudden and rapid increase in their population. Bird species irrupt for various reasons including availability of food or climate conditions. In this case the irruption was caused by winter migration from breeding areas north of New York state.
