Red Crossbill (Finch)
Central Eastern Nevada, USA
(2012.SEP.26)

Common to mature conifer forests of the Pacific Northwest, crossbills are foraging farther south, in the path of drought and wildfires that have depleted their nut sources.

This fellow is going to need to eat an awful lot of those wildflower seeds, in lieu of his fattier standard.

Great Basin Life exists … between … high desert expanses and majestic mountain wilderness.

Daily, I watch the winds of change sweeping away what remains of our western culture and heritage, and the land that has produced them.

My mission is to preserve as much as I can, of that which will soon vanish, through my photography.
