White-winged Crossbills

After unsuccessfully trying to photograph White-winged Crossbills multiple times this winter we finally were in the right spot at the right time. The resident flock at the University of Wisconsin Arboretum was very patient, allowed us to take many pictures, and did not fly away as soon as we got near. With everyone sick I went out first at nap time and found them, then I came home and sent Christine out with the camera while the girls slept so that she was able to see and photograph them also.
