Female White-winged Crossbill

Viewed 31 Times

Females are usually dull in color than there male counterparts. This female was busy eating seeds out of the cones on this Conifer tree to even know she was being photographed. I guess one advantage of a Mirror camera is the noise it makes when you click.. always gets a look from the subjects… and of course from the other photographers using mirrorless cameras…

I like the female coloration as much as the males. The seed falling is a nice bonus.


Love an image that catches the bird species in an iconic setting. Often when people look at Crossbills for the first time, they will wonder about that beak. Once you watch them feed on pine cones, it becomes very clear quickly.
