Crossbills continue but, may require time.

Chrissy McC has helped many birders see the park crossbills.
Her field birding skills and light-hearted approach are a joy.

Edge and June, Columbia MO finest, spent most of the day awaiting WWCR.

JB Joe and Mike joined the PM search.

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.

Then after another lap to check the Hemlocks by the playground...
...four White-winged flew in the Leona Dr. trees.
Likely the same juvenile male found Nov. 27.

This gentleman's face tells what bird is on his LCD monitor.
