MA - Red Crossbills - 06/17

Red Crossbills - males, Prescott Peninsula, New Salem, Franklin Co., MA. June 17th, 2013.
Nice to stumble across a dozen Red Crossbills during fieldwork on the Prescott Peninsula today.
All were feeding high in Red Pines and a good number proved to be males. Poor quality shots due to height and distance - apologies!

Once again, the song of Black-billed Cuckoo was a common sound this morning and I heard them at most of my stops in the Prescott  and had views of pair chasing around the shrubs.
