White-winged Crossbill

Last week's trip to the Massachusetts coast yielded a great day of birding with abundant photo opportunities, highlighted by both crossbills. I promised additional photos, but was delayed by the Pine Grosbeaks close to home.

The cone laden pines in the campground at Salisbury Beach State Park are likely to host these birds for some time.

White-winged Crossbills were the more abundant of the two. Images are below. I'll post Red Crossbill photos in a couple of days.

Good Birding!
