* Blue Hill Trail, Sherburne Refuge - increased numbers of White-winged 
Crossbills (had at least 35 in a flock this morning, birder reported 80 
recently) - Ruffed Grouse, Golden-Crowned Kinglets (have had them in the 
conifers 11 of 12 months over last five years), single Flicker - again could 
not refind the BB Woodpeckers.

* Ann Lake/Sand Dunes - Townsend's Solitaire very conspicuous on the tops of 
the deciduous trees to the right/west of the parking lot - walk in a bit for 
the best looks.  Few Crossbills flying around, not as easy to see as on Blue 
Hill.  Goshawk reported earlier this week.  Wear your orange, numerous 
hunters present.

Good birding to all!
