Stopped down at Hammo this morning to try and get more crossbill photos. 
There were a few birds in the pines (more big lenses than birds!) at West 
Beach, as well as Red-breasted Nuthatches.  Mid-morning, I found a 2nd 
winter Lesser Black-backed Gull loafing with the gulls in the West Beach 
parking area.
