Moscow neighborhood breeders, 6/6/09

A morning walk around my east Moscow neighborhood highlighted by some interesting in-town breeders (and lots of the expected). Only migrants were a couple Western Tanager and a Black-headed Grosbeak which moved quickly off to the north. I had some fly over crossbills including possible White-winged - some flight calls were ambiguous.

thanks, Charles.
