Chris and Tweeters,

The Crossbills finally left my neighborhood about two weeks ago. A flock of between 20 and 30 was hanging around from late April until just then. Although yesterday I heard a couple of stranglers in the firs across the street. We live about 500 ft elevation in Renton.

Hi Tweets,

Last week, while out and about, I noted flocks of red crossbills in the McCollum Park area of south Everett; as well as in the Dash Point State Park area of Federal Way. Anyone else seen these guys lately in the lowlands…seems a few roaming flocks looking for food out there.
