A New County bird!

So what is this latest addition to my Richland County list?  Yep, you guessed it. WHITE-WINGED CROSSBILL!!!  

I knew it would be only a matter of time before some were found in the county. Either by me or someone else.  

This was county bird #208! Unfortunately, the birds were well back into the pines and the branches and falling snow blowing in the wind didn't help visibility much so I couldn't get any photos. As it was, I could barely see the birds.  

Now I have to go driving around the county and systematically search every stand of Spruce I can find. There has to be more of these finches out there somewhere! 

Happy Birding!
