crossbills sedona
1. doing my normal around the yard walk i flushed what i was pretty sure was a marsh wren. so i went to get nanette and indeed we pished up a MARSH WREN right on our creek - yard bird 84.
2. after watching it nanette saw 3 distant birds up the creek a little. so we walked to the edge of the yard and were very surprised to see 3 RED CROSSBILLS (1 male) in the top of a desiduous tree - yard bird 85 and a new yavapai county bird as well!!!!!!!
3. they flew upstream before i could get camera or scope unfortunately.
4. we walked a mile up the creek but did not refind them.
5. with so little snow up in flagstaff we are surprised they have come down this year.
6. yard bird 83 a few days ago was a SAVANNAH SPARROW, and 1-2 have been daily feeding on the ground with our juncos and song & white-crtowned sparrows.
7. we still have about 6 AMERICAN GOLDFINCHES & about 6 PINE SISKIN with all our normal birds.
