Red crossbill

Red crossbill. 

Slightly larger than the ordinary sparrow that inhabits the coniferous forested areas of the mountains. 

Body length: 15-17 cm. It is named after a cross beak, which is used to dissolve cones. 

The males have a red tinted body and brownish-green wings, as in the photo. 

Red crossbill are calm and curious birds. In distress, their behavior reminds them of parrots. 

The staple food of the crossroads is uniform – different types of coniferous seed, beech acorn, sunflower, tree buds, rarely insects.
