The distinct crossed bills of this widespread stocky finch allows the red crossbill to access the seeds of pines, spruces, hemlocks and other conifer trees. It breeds across coniferous forests of North America in the late summer when cone crops are ripening, with a second cycle after cones have matured. Adult males range from red or orange in colour with dark wings, and females green or yellow. Bird enthusiasts can see these nomadic red crossbill flocks as they roam the landscape in search of a supply of evergreen cones especially in years when they come south.
