IUCN Conservation Status: Least Concern
A medium-sized finch of the boreal forest, the White-winged Crossbill is adapted for extracting seeds from the cones of coniferous trees. It moves large distances between years tracking the cone crop from place to place.
Song is a series of trills interspersed with chirps and warbles. Call a very dry, rapid "chut-chut-chut-chut."
