White-winged Crossbills

This was a good year for crossbills in much of the Mid Atlantic states.  We had a good push through my county in November, and then not so much.  Today I found four White-winged Crossbills feeding on downed sweetgum pods at Spruce Run in Hunterdon County, NJ.  Fun to watch them so close.  Enjoy!
