White-winged Crossbill

A resting Crossbill?

Viewed 66 Times

As I was watching six crossbills feeding I was shocked to see this female perched and resting on a small evergreen. It was early morning and maybe this bird was just waking up. I’ve seen Crossbills briefly rest before but this bird didn’t move for above five minutes. I was not complaining mind you, just surprised.

I understand your surprise at seeing the resting Crossbill! Great shot – how many did you take in that five minutes?
