I had a single female Red Crossbill perched in the top of a coneless Doug
fir at the edge of Graham Oaks Nature Park in Wilsonville at about
12:30 today. I recorded its calls, attached the recordings to my eBird
checklist, and sent a link to the checklist to Matt Young and Tim
Spahr in hopes of getting onfirmation of crossbill type.
This is the first RECR I've seen in the Valley this winter.

Hi All,Just a minute ago I had a flock of some 50 crossbills fly
over my house, here in western Polk County (Falls City). Was nice
to see. They were headed east. As I have not heard of any
reports outside the coast in W Oregon, this was surprising.
However, I don't read all of the reports on OBOL, so may have
missed something. Now, if only there were some of the
White-winged variety...........I assume there were all Reds, so
hopefully they will return for a better look.
