It looks like he's taking a drink out of that pine cone! Again - what a beautiful setting to photograph the Crossbill in!

Nice Capture of the Crosbill. They have a really cool built in foraging tool kit.

Nick, you never cease to amaze me with the photos you get!

Thanks everyone. I wish I could fill the frame with these birds but they are always so high up.
Every picture I've taken of one is quite a big crop.
I think I need a ladder next time :-)

ANOTHER White winged crossbill. I wish I could just see one. They are few and far between on my sighting list. Great pictures. I hope the Chipper stays for your count. It must really be mixed up.

You're getting quite a Christmas card collection. Lovely.

Very nice shot showing feeding activity - so many birds like to feed at the ends of the pine cones!

Nick : This white-winged crossbill and the earlier series both are awesome. And that housefinch was just incredible composition...Thomas

Thanks everyone. I'll have an other update up later . I managed to get some better shots of this species on one of the two recent bird counts I just did :-)
