After listening to the vocalizations of the types, I believe the flight song I heard at Camp Tecumseh this week was Type II, unkinked. The birds were in red pines, and not long after I first saw the flock, the birds flew to another group of pines beyond the horse corral, and then flew off the property. To my knowledge, they did not return. I heard the flight call as they were over the corral.

On November 3, Becky Heck and I visited Dunes State Park specifically for the Red Crossbills while we were at the lakefront. We had a minimum of 62 birds at the parking lot east of the gatehouse. I managed to get two recordings that were very poor in quality.
I heard from Matt Young today about the recordings. He said the first recording at the linked checklist below contains Type 2, 3, and 4 birds. The second recording is inconclusive as to the types of Red Crossbills. An overview of Red Crossbill types is as http://ebird.org/content/ebird/news/recrtype/
