Red Crossbill Photos

Photography by Terry Sohl

My Favorite:  Red Crossbills are a species that are unpredictable winter visitors in my part South Dakota, but I've never had one at my feeders, and have only seen them on very rare occasions.  The photos I have of the species are from forested areas further west, including some photos from the Black Hills of South Dakota.
