- Media: 2 Photos, 3 Audio
- Comments: "Confirmed by Matt Young at eBird.

Several pairs or small groups observed in different spots, many singing.
Presumed breeding. Two observed singing, one preening extensively, in dead,
lichened tops of Sitka Spruces at end of loop. No foraging observed. Photo
of one of these birds, same one of my presumed Type 10 Recordings.

Forest here is diverse. Dominant species Sitka Spruce, Shore Pine, and
Douglas-fir. High cone crops on Sitka Spruce, hundreds of new cones visible
on many. One tree on which I counted over a thousand green cones. Also many
open brown cones--seedless? Douglas-fir also has significant cone crop
similar to that seen throughout Western Oregon this spring. Between 50 and
200 green cones on most mature individuals. Shore Pines with present but
less abundant crop. 10-30 closed cones on some trees, 30-50 open brown
cones on others.

Western Hemlocks present with significant brown cone crops, no greens.
Redcedar also present, but are crossbills documented to use cypress family
cones?"
