If driving to the coast to see White-winged Crossbills seems odd to you,
that's because it is. Incredibly odd. The coastal incursion of
White-winged Crossbills that we have been witnessing for the last several
months is totally without precedent in WA and OR birding records. For
those who are Red Crossbill experts, these last few months have been
equally unprecedented for the number of records of Type 1 and 2 found on
the coast. What is going on?

Check out eBird Northwest for my recent note that describes the extent of
this event, and provides some background on why it may be happening. And,
while you are there, read about 2018, The Year of the Bird. Then, go bird
the coast to witness this event, which may be winding down, so go soon.
