Male White-winged Crossbill

It’s always very exciting to see a new bird come to our backyard. I was hoping to catch this bird and his mate together, but it was not to be and I’ve not seen them since. I’ve found out that the White-winged Crossbill is a bird that is highly irregular in it’s wanderings, but it’s regular habitat is mainly in Canada and North of there, but they go where there is a large pine cone crop as that is what they feed on. If you look closely you can see that his bill is definitely crossed. I’ll show the female the next time I post.
