On my way to Naperville this evening I stopped at Morton Arboretum in search of red crossbills. I went to the west side area near the hemlock collection, just west of Lake Marmol, and saw two crossbills in the 50 minutes I was there in two different areas.
Due to the late afternoon lighting and clouds I was not able to get any good pictures. I will have to come back and try again earlier on a sunnier day.
Add this to the scoter Jared led me to at Crab Orchard Lake coming back from Mississippi yesterday and I have had a pretty good couple of days for FoY birds.
