Female Red Crossbill Makes a Rare Stop in Manitouwadge, Ontario

A unique visitor stopped by the Ontario FeederWatch Cam this afternoon – a female Red Crossbill! Unlike males, female Red Crossbills aren't actually red at all. Instead, the greenish-yellow plumage on their chest and rump is paired with a blackish-brown coloration on the wings and tail-feathers. This female does, however, showcase the species namesake crossbill – a thick, curved bill with crossed tips. These stocky finches use their specialized bills to pry open the cones of conifers and expose the nutritious seeds inside! Thanks to our keen-eyed cam host, Tammie Hache, for the spot!
