Hi birders!

We need your input. Barry & Ginger Landgon-Lassange photographed this bird south of Lake Cunningham for the Evergreen sector of the San Jose CBC. Photos attached. Lost the bird after last photo.

Notes: “Looked yellow-green in flight. Size of an oriole... Could be crossbill sized.”

Crossbill? Other Finch or Oriole with a deformed bill?Any thoughts are mucho appreciated! Thanks in advance!

Dani Christensen
Evergreen Sector Leader
