Subject: Red Crossbills and Pine Siskins Perry County
I had 2 RED CROSSBILLS and 7 PINE SISKINS at Bryner Road in western Perry
County this morning. There may of been more crossbills as I saw a flock of
7 or 8 birds fly off that were the right shape and size but could not get
on them. I have included the eBird checklist from the morning. The
Crossbills and most of the Siskins were seen at the western end of the
Bryner Road loop.
