Avon, Fisher Meadows.
Single stocky finch with notched tail, undulating flight. Flying north to south. Vocalizing pretty constantly a bisyllabic tchet-tchet, staccato-ish but relatively soft and much less tonal than Red Crossbill.
Followed with binoculars but did not land. Seemed unlikely but clearly a larger finch and voice distinctive.
Also late birds: Osprey (caught a fish in Spring Lake), Eastern Phoebe, Field Sparrow.
