Observation details

Came into drink at the "leaky tank" after modest playback of calls. They perched in the cedars and pines that surrounded the large tank, before slowly circling in on their bucket of water, getting lower and lower before proceeding to come in at once to drink (at ~12:15 pm). After a short drink, they vacated the area, apparently satisfied. The very helpful park guard said that noon is the best time for this crossbill show. One adult male (fully red), one partially red (subadult male), and the rest females/immatures.
