Information about the White-Winged Crossbill:
The White-Winged Crossbill - also called the Two-Barred Crossbill - are finches with highly specialized, crossed bills and long, pointed wings. These passerine birds can be found in large flocks year round and call when they are foraging in an unproductive area. Their bills are adapted for removing seeds from cones, and they start at the bottom of a cone and spiral upward, prying open each scale and removing the seeds with their tongues. The bills can cross in either direction, and the direction of the cross dictates the direction that the bird spirals up the cone. They can eat up to 3,000 seeds a day.
