From Patrick Comins with Corrie Folsom-O'Keefe, Leslie Kane and Sandy Breslin (with Ken Elkins being 10 seconds too late):
2/16 - Southbury, Audubon Center at Bent of the River, WHITE-WINGED CROSSBILL, flyover and perched in sycamore tree across the field from the barn.
To be honest, I had called it as Red Crossbill from the call note (raspy jip jip, jip, jip, jip), but the photos told otherwise. Guess I gotta brush up on my finch flight calls. A bad, but identifiable photo on my Facebook page.
