Greetings All: I spent about an hour at the Lubbock Cemetery yesterday, unsuccessfully trying to obtain pictures of a flock of ever-flying Red Crossbills. Highlights included 9+ Red-breasted Nuthatches, 4+ Golden-crowned Kinglets, 2 Eastern Bluebirds, 3 Western Bluebirds, 2 Cedar Waxwings, 1 continuing Phainopepla, 12+ Red Crossbills, 1 White-throated Sparrow, and 1 Orange-crowned Warbler.
I spent two hours at the site this morning and couldn't even find the ding dang crossbills but did pick up the following goodies: 1 Yellow-bellied Sapsucker, 13+ Red-breasted Nuthatches, 1 Brown Creeper, 3+ Golden-crowned Kinglets, 12+ Eastern Bluebirds, 6+ Western Bluebirds,1 male Mountain Bluebird, 5 Cedar Waxwings, 1 female Phainopepla, 2 Pine Siskins, 1 White-throated Sparrow, and 1 Orange-crowned Warbler.
Two good, bordering on great, visits but still no crossbill photographs.
