After chasing them all summer without any luck, I finally saw a flock of red crossbills on Plum Island Thursday while on a Snowy Owl expedition with my kids and my girlfriend.
Today, as I went out to shovel snow in the driveway, I heard a similar jip-jip call from a flock of birds. Running inside to grab my binoculars, I found a flock of about 30 in the white pines across the street, at the end of my driveway!
Interesting to end 2020 with Red Crossbills, and to start 2021 with them, too!
