   White-winged Crossbill (Loxia leucoptera) - WWCR (recent eBird sightings, view CBRC records, range map
)

  1. Re: White-winged Crossbills edging toward California LINK
    DATE: Dec 6, 2017 @ 8:04am, 5 day(s) ago
    Tim Rodenkirk reported a possible WW Crossbill in Cape Blanco. That's about 40 miles south of Coos Bay in Curry County. When I checked that location is about 60 miles as the crossbill flies from the border. They're getting so close. I'm predicting a chase trip to Del Norte in the future.

  3. White-winged Crossbills edging toward California LINK
    DATE: Dec 5, 2017 @ 5:02pm, 6 day(s) ago
    For those interested, especially ones living or visiting Del Norte and
    
    Humboldt Counties, be aware that there is an invasion involving
    
    WHITE-WINGED CROSSBILLS currently taking place along the immediate COAST
    
    in Washington and Oregon. It has been a long time since such has
    
    happened in Oregon. Singles and small-to-medium-sized flocks have been
    
    found now as far south as Tillamook, and there was a POSSIBLE bird today
    
    much farther south in Coos--only two counties north of the CA border.
    
    Some are by themselves, though most are mixed in with Red Crossbills.
    
    Just about all these birds are turning up in heavily-cone-laden spruce
    
    trees along the IMMEDIATE COAST, not in interior mountains, etc., where
    
    invasions are perhaps more typical.  So.....  birders in Del Norte,
    
    Humboldt, etc., should be on the lookout for cone-rich spruces close to
    
    the coast--if such exist locally this year.
