Hi Dan, Types 3, 4, and 5 are all western in origin. See the eBird maps linked in the WI eBird article for details. Clearly the cone crop there is deficient, perhaps related to drought but I'm not sure.

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?
