Checklist Comments: John H and I did the frozen tundra tour of Fox Hill Rd, going by Lake Sacandaga and up into the wilds of Providence. With temperatures in the single digits and a light breeze, we stopped at the intersection of Hans Creek Rd and Glenwild Rd in Providence. As we started walking, John noted birds moving in the top of a pine not too far off. As I had the camera he asked me to take photos. I am glad I did as they turned out to be at least 4 Red Crossbills, kind of our goal for the days. We also saw a flock of at least 20 Snow Buntings. A small flock of 5 tiny green finches flew by but we couldn't get a handle on their ID.
