MA - another Red Crossbill 12/14

Some nasty flu bug is keeping me down and indoors at the moment but having another Red Crossbill over our house in Gill was enough to bring a smile to my face this morning. Common Redpolls, usually single birds, have been consistently flying over the house at first light on most mornings too. Despite having the nyjer seed feeders topped up, they just don't seem interested in visiting leaving the bounty to our regular flock of American Goldfinches

Thanks JoAnne. That's encouraging. I'm still waiting here in Gill. Will post when, or if, they show up.
