Red Crossbill

Lori, Conor and I took a walk along the Englishman River this morning, starting at Top Bridge. The birding was fairly dull and though I hoped for an Orange-crowned Warbler, I was unsuccessful in hearing or seeing one. In the forest there were Pacific Wren, Brown Creeper, Golden-crowned Kinglet and American Robin but that was about it. However, it was a beautiful morning and Lori was very excited at seeing Trillium and Oregon Grape. On our way home we made a stop at Little Mountain where we got great views of a pair of Red Crossbill. Unfortunately the male didn't want to pose for the camera but his mate sure did.
