    A lifer for me, a family of crossbills arrived at my feeder for a very short stay. The male and female each posed for me but the youngster was too busy trying to make its way from the feeder roof down to the seed.

    A semi rare visitor. Have only ever seen them a handful of times. He really showed up in the sunlight. Unfortunately his stay was under a minute, and I never did get a good shot of him. This is the best one, ttw at full zoom, and cropped.
