  •  Crossbills are among my very favorite birds, (9+ / 0-)

    and fortunately they are around a lot, visiting the feeder daily and in the nearby alders. It's not just their gorgeous shades of mottled red and gold, but I also like their calm, pragmatic demeanor (for a bird). They don't get agitated by the siskins screeching and flapping at them. They munch away carefully, gazing contemplatively into the middle distance.

    Wilson's, haven't seen any of them yet. I'll keep an eye out now.

    I like how you watch for birds even when you're working ;-)
