Red crossbills were in the pines near the lodge again this morning. I had two around 8:30. Andrew Simon had as many as eight a bit earlier.

Late yesterday afternoon had at least two Red Crossbills at the S E end of Evergreen Lake.

Two male and two female Red crossbills were feeding in the pines again this afternoon near the lodge at Oak Openings Preserve Metropark. The call of these birds seemed different from crossbills I've heard in the park in recent months. I recorded them (as well as the earlier birds) and will have to do some research.

At least one male Red crossbill remained near the lodge in Oak Openings Preserve Metropark this morning. It or another Red crossbill was in a small stand of pines lust northeast of Mallard Lake.

Matt I checked Birds of Toledo when I saw you’re post yesterday. It was interesting to me to find out that we have Oak Openings records in June, July, and August. I was just curious to see if there have been any confirmed breeding records since the last publication date in 2002.

Brandon, there are no known breeding records for the Toledo area. I'm not aware of even any suspected breeding activity. Not all of the summer records attributed to the Oak Openings in BOTA are actually from the OO Region. The August 1975 birds were seen on the Anderson Farm.

Until tonight, I had never heard a SINGING Red crossbill in the Toledo area (recordings made). I'm hoping it's indicative of possible breeding at Oak Openings Preserve Metropark.

Ten crossbills this morning - one male singing persistently, chasing a female, and performing what appeared to be a courtship flight. Pine warblers are also back in OO.
