I just watched the one male and two female RED CROSSBILLS munching black oil sunflower seed from the top of our "two barrel" feeder in our backyard. This was from 8:15 AM to 8:20 AM. Then something "spooked" them, and the American Goldfinches, and they all flew off. Hopefully, they will return.

Cold and windy here!

Hi Larry,
I work in St Joe and would love to come by to see the Crossbill. Have a morning meeting 8-9:30. Any chance it will be lurking past then? If so, what is the address?
