Jer reported a flock of approximately 30 White-winged Crossbills as he saw the main group fly about. There is sufficient cone producing spruce in the area; especially on the east side of 152nd. The last we saw of the them was around 3:45(?) as it seems they were taking cover for the night in the heavy spruce just to the north of 152nd and Bentwood on the east side of 152nd. I informed the homeowner, of the apparent roost site, what was going on; good views were obtained from the roadside so I made no effort to seek permission for future birders to enter the property.
Please be careful in this area; lots of traffic.
Larger numbers of spruce with heavy cone numbers are also present along James just east of 160th.
