Red-winged Blackbirds:  Just enjoying a cup of coffee (December 15) whilst viewing a pair of Red-winged Blackbirds at my feeder. Third time this week for them. They are a welcome sight, given the paucity of winter bird list rarities and fall “leftovers“.  Michael Gillespie, David Fife Line, Keene

White-winged Crossbills: Today (December 10) during the noon hour, I was just finishing preparing my lunch when through the kitchen window, I noticed a chunky, little finch atop one of the spruces that form the border between the field and forest east of the yard. The scope revealed it to be the first White-winged Crossbill that I have seen this year. It was a female. A scan of the rest of the tops of spruces turned up a second, and it was a male. They both seemed wary, actively looking about. Neither of them ventured lower to feed on the abundant cone seeds just below them. I watched for about ten minutes, and then off they went together.  Tim Dyson – Warsaw
