Near Jeremy Ranch
Summit County, Utah
(Emails from Kimberly Roush, 16 Mar 2009)
I too awoke to what I swear was a White-wing Crossbill. The white
patches very prominent. Saw it through the scope but it flew off before I
could photograph it. I carried my camera while walking my cat and one acre
up came upon a flock of Red Crossbills. Will download the photos
tonight. I did not see the white-winged with this little group of one
female and two male red crossbills.
I live in Pinebrook, a development on the south side of I - 80 across from
Jeremy Ranch, just after the summit on Parley's Canyon. We are about 2
miles south of the highway. Lots of fir and non-native pines.
