>At 1:15pm today (10th) a flock of 7-8 White-winged Crossbills flew over my yard. Drew Smith first saw and heard the birds as they flew to a neighbors spruce trees. As we set up a scope to view them, we first noticed several Pine Siskins and then the crossbills flew north giving me a brief but conclusive view of at least one pinkish-red male with prominent white wingbars. There are many scattered spruce and pines in the neibhborhood, so they may stick around.
>Location is 570 S. Greenleaf Dr. in Eagan. This is just NW of the intersection of Cliff Rd. and Roberts Trail (aka Hi 3).
