Bird surprise 8.13.15

We are having fun with birds. Not only did we see a new bird on the beach, and a bobcat, but when we came home Jonathan was watching the bird feeder and said,

“Get your binoculars, there’s a new bird out here.”

It was a family of red crossbills, male, female and 3 chicks. These are the weirdest birds. The tips of their beaks cross, and overall their beaks are bigger than you’d think for the size of the birds.

Despite the photo, I got a good look at them–very cool.

I am a retired archaeologist and I like to travel, especially to places where you can walk along the shore or watch birds. My husband Jonathan and I travel for more than half the year every year, seeing all the places that we haven't gotten to yet.
