Red crossbill at feeder in Canada

20 January 2017

A unique visitor stopped by the Ontario FeederWatch Cam this afternoon – a female Red Crossbill! Unlike males, female Red Crossbills aren’t actually red at all. Instead, the greenish-yellow plumage on their chest and rump is paired with a blackish-brown coloration on the wings and tail-feathers. This female does, however, showcase the species namesake crossbill – a thick, curved bill with crossed tips. These stocky finches use their specialized bills to pry open the cones of conifers and expose the nutritious seeds inside!

Thanks to our keen-eyed cam host, Tammie Hache, for the spot!

The FeederWatch cam is located in a residential neighborhood in Manitouwadge, Ontario.

Leucistic grosbeak, other birds in Canada


This video from Canada says about itself:

9 December 2016

Have you ever noticed a bird whose plumage coloration looks odd or even abnormal? Then you may have spotted a bird that is affected with leucism – like this male Pine Grosbeak that visited the Ontario FeederWatch Cam this morning. Leucistic birds have a genetic mutation that prevents melanin and other pigments from being deposited normally on feathers, resulting in pale or muted colors on the entire bird.

Thanks to Perky-Pet for helping to make the Ontario FeederWatch Cam possible!
