I had at least five Red Crossbills at my feeders in Hays this morning. There may have been more, but I didn't see them until I walked up to fill the thistle feeder. They have visited periodically for several weeks, but never reliably.
At least 23 Pine Siskins were at my feeders yesterday late afternoon. I have had one extra-large siskin visiting off and on for several weeks. It appears to be 10% or more larger than the rest of the siskins. It is NOT a female House Finch.
