A Red crossbill was still at the lodge this morning. Pretty amazing. I suspect that there are more around (18 last weekend), and I stopped at numerous potential sites with Red pines - no luck finding any in those stands this morning. The odds seem very high that these birds are nesting somewhere in the park.
 
A couple of Brown creepers have been singing near the lodge parking lot too.
 
It's worth mentioning again - the mosquitoes are incredibly bad!

Crossbills were present this morning in the shrubs on the right just before the bridge over Swan Creek.  I did not get a count,  but I would say close to 10.

Ten crossbills this morning - one male singing persistently, chasing a female, and performing what appeared to be a courtship flight. Pine warblers are also back in OO.

Until tonight, I had never heard a SINGING Red crossbill in the Toledo area (recordings made). I'm hoping it's indicative of possible breeding at Oak Openings Preserve Metropark.
