No crossbills for me, but upon returning from an uneventful morning of local birding, I found my Centennial (Arapahoe) yard overrun by American Goldfinches and Pine Siskins. They were eventually joined by a flock of Chipping Sparrows with two Clay-colored Sparrows in tow, a Western Tanager, a Yellow Warbler, and a Dusky Flycatcher.
