Subject: [MASSBIRD] Montague Crossbills Continue
Made the trek out to the Old Northfield Rd. gate in Montague with a
couple friends today. The red crossbills continue there and the
puddle still attracts the thirsty ones. There do seem to be multiple
groups with some staying nearby and others splitting off to parts
unknown and returning after a while. At one point we had 25-30 in the
air at once.

I'd be interested if anyone knows the typical timeframe when
crossbills leave our area. It seems that these have already stayed
late into this season.

For those interested, a couple photos
