Yardbirds/Loads of Crossbills, 5/30/11
It was a great day of birding in my yard! There were flocks of hundreds of House Finches and Pine Siskins.

My pair of Red Crossbills that were around a few days ago grew into a flock of 45 today. It seemed like there were Crossbills of all shapes and colors in all the pines in my yard. It was quite a sight to behold!

Violet-green Swallows were gathering nesting material. A few paris of House Finches, Pine Siskins, and Dark-eyed Juncos were feeding their young.

Other birds were foraging all over my yard.

Nothing terribly unusual, just plenty of them!

A full list:
American Crow
Black-headed Grosbeak
Common Raven
Dark-eyed Junco
House Finch
Downy Woodpecker
Eurasian Collared Dove
Hairy Woodpecker
Lesser Goldfinch
Northern Flicker
Pine Siskin
Pygmy Nuthatch
Red Crossbill
Steller's Jay
Violet-green Swallow
Western Bluebird
White-breasted Nuthatch
