Red Crossbills

The following photos were taken on June 3 in a restricted area of Quabbin. I was in the area with a permit working on the Massachusetts Breeding Bird Atlas. The three birds (one adult female and two juveniles) flew into a pine and the adult female fed the juveniles on several occasions. The area in which these birds were seen is quite remote. A truly unique breeding record for Massachusetts. Also in the area of these birds were a variety of other interesting breeders (or possible breeders) including Cerulean Warbler, Worm eating Warbler and several Whip Poor Wills among others.
