Splendid colours in the snow

Krossnefur – Common Crossbill / Red Crossbill – Loxia curvirostra

A small flock of Common Crossbills regularly comes by and visits the feeding trays. The males stand out in their splendid red and orange colours and in the snow even more so. Around eight of them come every day but competition is a concern. The Blackbirds, Redwings and Starlings are bullies at the feeders.
