These birds are in the St. Louis 50 Mile Circle Kidz.
Thanks to Josh for drawing my attention to this.

While filling the feeders this morning I heard "jip jip jip" falled by a
quick, repeated dry jumble.

At first my slow brain thought I was just being scolded by the yard
goldfinches, but then "crossbills!" clicked in and I looked up upon
hearing the notes repeated and saw three small dark finches headed toward
the conifers in Worden proper.

These particular conifers are in the SW section of Worden where there are
also difficult-to-observe feeders in the neighborhood along McGauhey.
