Red Crossbill

Red Crossbills are the most common crossbills in middle Europe and still rarlely to observe. I saw this female in the Bavarian Forest National park as part of a flock in dense spruce forest.

  3. I always prefer capturing birds in their habitat rather than at feeders - these are great! We have Red Crossbills in the US too, but not this far south - S. Texas. Maybe I'll get to see some in my travels. Have a great week!

  4. The first two photos remind me of the female house finches I see around here. Pretty captures of these lovely birds!

  5. You did so well. I don't think I will ever get pictures of elusive Cross bills.

  6. Great shots. I don't know this bird but I can see from your excellent pictures where it gets its name!

  8. Great shots - I have only ever seen crossbills as very distant shapes in a 'scope and now they are even further away!
