Subject: [obol] 5 types of Red Crossbill on the Oregon Coast
In addition to the occurrence of White-winged Crossbills, we have had a seemingly unprecedented gathering of Red Crossbills along the Oregon Coast. In the Florence area last week, I recorded birds of types 1, 2, 3, 4 and western 10, the latter being the usual Sitka Spruce crossbill expected to be present throughout the year. Type 1 is the rarest and not often found in most of Oregon.

That’s a remarkable level of crossbill diversity.
