These birds are whiter, then the Common Redpoll. With less streaking underparts, white rump, male has faint rose on the breast or none at all. They love thistle seeds and sunflower seeds at the feeders.

I don't see many, but they usually travel with flocks of common redpoll, so you really have to look to pick them out.
