Highway 421 (Iron Mountain) 

While participating in the Shady Valley/Mountain City Christmas Count 
yesterday, David Kirschke, Cathy Myers, and I had at least four Red Crossbills 
on the Mountain City side of Iron Mountain. We were able to see four birds 
together, but we heard crossbills at several points up the mountain (we just 
couldn't establish if these were different birds or the same ones flying over a 
large area). 

In addition: On the way home, we had a raft of 400+ Ring-billed Gulls on 
Watauga Lake (Roan Creek area).
