I was wondering if the Red Crossbill movement may be related to drought and fires in the Rocky Mountains? Where is Type 5 normally found?

Good Birding,

Ryan, do you think that your report (among others) in the last few weeks noting northern species like red breasted nuthatches, crossbills and more, suggests a possible eruption year? Having followed the spring and summer of substantial rains in the north, I would have thought that the food supply would be substantial at the least. Any thoughts on this?
