Amazing Crossbills with Brodie Cass Talbott
Red Crossbills are easily among the most enthralling of songbirds in North America. Nomadic, distinctive (with their unique crossed bills), and seemingly scarce until all of a sudden, dozens explode from the treetops. In this class, we’ll learn all about their amazing evolution and natural history. Then we’ll dive into where to find them, how to identify them by sound, and how you can record their vocalizations in order to contribute to community science, helping us to understand and protect these most fascinating of finches.
