Another finch yard species

My finch Youtube program was just a day old but had to update it, with a front yard male red crossbill eating cone seeds on my Norway Spruce on Saturday. A new yard bird. A single bird for just five minutes but low enough to get great photos to add to the video.  Meanwhile, common redpoll numbers have declined to about 25 on my feeders but also now eating spruce cone seeds in the early morning.  Red-winged blackbirds have arrived in the neighborhood.
