1-2 pm flock of 20+ Red Crossbills in the Japanese black pines at West Beach at Hammo. Also some in the pines on the road to Meigs. Most of them had a soft musical Jip note, but one had a louder and harsher call, as did the ones I heard on the way to Meigs'. Didn't get a recording though. One observer from RI had a single W-Winged at West Beach and there were R-b Nuts and a Palm there.
Paul D had some Reds at ESP earlier along with the BTG Warb and we had a Palm and 2 Blackpolls. Noble Proctor had a look at the Audubon's and I heard the chip.
Also 3 Barn Swallows and a Northern Rough-winged and a sapsucker.
