Re: Bird Id.

hi...from a photo you can only identify these as cassia/red crossbills.  You need to identify cassia crossbills by their call (& location) which is a bit different from the other multiple sub-species which have different calls. They do have a tiny bit larger bill than red crossbills but you need the bird "in hand" and measure the bill - you can't tell just visually because the difference is so small.
