... and a whole flock of crossbills did come for them, right outside my 3rd story window. This was actually the second day I saw them there. The first day I'd left my camera at home. This day was foggy, and the office windows needed washing, but with some post-processing I managed to get a dozen or so decent shots (out of a couple hundred attempts - so obviously I didn't get much work done that day )
