Are you often around this pine? I'd be interested to know if you see any red crossbills.

Yes, I see these Red pine often. I've never seen a Red crossbill in that area, but I'll keep an eye out now that you've mentioned it. This area is deep and dark robin country. BTW, I'm assuming the robins here are Newfoundland robins and not American robins. There's a difference. From Wikipedia: T. m. nigrideus breeds from coastal northern Quebec to Labrador and Newfoundland and winters from southern Newfoundland...It is uniformly darker or blackish on the head, with a dark gray back. The underparts are slightly more red than those of the nominate subspecies.
