On my last day to get to 205 for the year on my 2017 eBird list I was able to find a flock of about 9 White-winged Crossbills foraging in rather low alders along Grandview Rd near the refinery. One of the local security guards stopped and tracked me down wondering if I was ok. I'd left my car window open, keys in the car when I ran across the road into the field/woods to get a better look. Ended the year with 204. Never did get my Common Redpolls.

The leucistic Red-tailed Hawk was also seen flying overhead in that area.
