more Moscow WW Crossbills, 1/24/09

Hi All -

I had a nice walk around my neighborhood this morning with loads of birds. A flock of mostly White-winged Crossbills flew over and landed briefly just south of 6th & Lincoln Sts. There were at least 30 probably more, most White-winged by calls but at least 1 Red Crossbill by call and brief views. These birds were on the move. I estimated 700 A. Robins in a many roving flocks near Blaine & 7th Streets. Also a pair of Bewick's Wrens on Lynn St.
