Joe Neal still watching red crossbills at FCC

 followed a flock of 20-25 Red Crossbills for an hour this morning at FCC but it was too windy for sound recordings.

At one point they dropped out of a pine tree to the ground in front of me (20 feet) for water in a shallow depression filled from recent rain. If they were concerned about my presence, it wasn't obvious. Their varied plumage colors, large bills, strong feet, gregarious behavior, all reminded me of descriptions of Carolina Parakeets.

This morning I posted some information about a crossbill story I did for KUAF. Here is a direct link:
