For the first time in my life I have been photographed crossbill. I know that the pictures are not good because it is a very long distance, but the good fortune to shoot this bird is so big so I would like to share with you.
17 cm. Large heavy finch with crossplied beak tip. The male and female red green yellow rump is clearly visible in flight.
Larger crossbill: Have powerful beak and shorter neck.
Available in all of Sweden where there is growing conifers. Eat preferably seeds from pine cones
