- Duh! You're right. Although I did not see any Townsend Warblers either. :-)

But did see a very large flock of white-winged crossbills (20+) near the old nursery as well as 8-10 pine grosbeaks. All foraging roughly as a group. Some crossbilss very aggressive against others. Thought I heard both siskins and waxwings but when I stopped walking to listen without the noisy snow - the calls stopped.
