Edge and June, Columbia MO finest, spent most of the day awaiting WWCR."http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8058/8247623719_37e24d1f5e.jpg"    
JB Joe and Mike joined the PM search. "http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8481/8248692056_1ab7e85823.jpg" 
The WWCRs were briefly viewed in AM.Finally a male lone Red Crossbill flew in with two Siskin atop a Hemlock and excited the PM birders. "http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8346/8247624717_6c92c21da6.jpg"   "http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8481/8248691714_f9376849b7.jpg" 
Then after another lap to check the Hemlocks by the playground... "http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8197/8247623915_ab773a7d50.jpg"  ...four White-winged flew in the Leona Dr. trees. "http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8480/8247623503_eaac0b8728.jpg"   "http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8204/8247623389_7ba98da163.jpg" Likely the same juvenile male found Nov. 27. "http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8202/8247624011_90b7cb01a3.jpg"   "http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8489/8248691238_1ce58f7348.jpg"
