We had 2 male and 1 female PURPLE FINCHES in the yard north of Bandon Coos Cty this morning. They seemed to show up with a large flock of House Finches that suddenly appeared.
I spend some time at Cape Arago yesterday morning looking for crossbills. There are so many RED CROSSBILLS its almost overwhelming. I heard what sounded like a few White-wings, but seeing any crossbills well there is a challenge, as the trees are rather high and if and when they land, the lighting is not ideal.
