We’ve had some pretty birds visiting our feeder this spring. Take a look at this one. My best guess for this, based on the Birds of Seattle book, is Purple Finch. But it doesn’t look quite right. Notice the overlapping beak and the yellow splashes. What do you think?
Update: I’ve been looking at bird sites and think it might be a Red Crossbill. Agree?
Update 5/6: Confirmed! My mother-in-law Muriel confirmed that this is a Red Crossbill. Here’s one more picture from their visit to our feeder again today.
