Interested in College in Alaska?

Red Crossbill
Loxia curvirostra

This bird was singing rather boldly, but I did not recognize the song or the bird when I took the picture. With some help from more knowledgable people, I was able to determine its species.

Location: Lincoln Street Woods, Sitka, Alaska

Next: Song Sparrow (Melospiza melodia)
