Hi Tweeters,

While hiking with my wife Wendy yesterday (Sunday) along the Esmeralda
Basin Trail (spelled 'Esmerelda' on eBird) we came across a small flock of
White-winged Crossbills. As I noted on eBird, we were perhaps 2.5 miles
from the trailhead a little beyond where the habitat opens up and the
switchbacks become shorter, about 0.5 miles before the junction with the
Lake Ann Trail (#1226).We also heard some calling along the Lake Ann Trail
about a mile further along. This is my first sighting of this species in
Washington during the summer.

Good birding,

Lonnie Somer
