OMG....it's me again! :D

These two different crossbill males? Red Crossbill and White-winged Crossbill? As usual please pardon the terribly blurry shots,my trial and error on the SLR is truly hit and miss. Especially with lens at max and tiny bird far up tree.

Both taken in Kodiak Alaska, one in town, one outside.

Assuming this is the female to the red/white crossbill:

I agree with your IDs. Looks like you got a pair of White-winged and a lone male Red to go with your female Red from the other day.

Oh I got a little more than a lone Red Crossbill :D Will get it posted eventually. Very cool on seeing both types though.
