White-winged Crossbill Loxia leucoptera

Recorded by BBA observers at "possible" and "probable" (once) levels in Wenatchee Mountains and along Cascade crest, although breeding not confirmed anywhere in Washington to date. Absent or nearly so in our four-county area most years; records indicate presence during irruption years. White-winged Crossbills prefer fairly mature spruce and larch forests, which limits their distribution to high boreal forest zones. May breed at any time of year, depending on cone crop availability.
