Redpoll (Carduelis flammea) Science Article 2


On 21 July 1999 I found, together with Per J. Tommeraas, a nest of the Redpoll Carduelis flammea with four eggs 4 m high up in a birch at Virdnejavvri in the Alta-Kautokeino water system in Finnmark, North Norway, north of the Arctic Polar Circle. The nest was situated about 310 m above sea level and above the conifer tree limit. The female was incubating four eggs.
