Arctic Redpoll (Acanthis hornemanni)

Appearance:

Differs from Common Redpoll by white, almost unstreaked rump (young birds may have some streaks). Under tail coverts white, with only very narrow black center, or no black at all. Upperparts greyer, underparts whiter with less prominent streaking. Wing bars brighter. Bill shorter and less deep, and face "flatter". Juveniles difficult to distinguish from Common Redpoll, even when held in hand. Species status debated.

Sound:

Very similar to Common Redpoll, but possibly with a softer tone and slightly longer pauses between each syllable. See Common Redpoll.
