Subject: Hays Crossbills 8/28
I was outside Hays Middle School with some students on Monday 8/28 when I noticed the shadows of three birds land in the tree above my head. It was not a big tree and it seemed strange that the birds were that willing to land close to us. When they took off, they gave the distinct call of a Red Crossbill. Don't ask me which one, but they were definitely crossbills.
