I received a phone call from Todd Day this morning telling me that he and Eric Hynes saw 10 Red Crossbills graveling at the bend in Rt. 250 just after the Confederate Breastworks this morning about 7:30. I believe his exact words were "What never happens, happened!". That in response to be told repeatedly by numerous individuals that crossbills gravel there and then failing to find any in what feels like at least 100 attempts. I wish I had been there, but alas I was not.
