Red crossbills are interesting birds. Nature has a way of adapting species to make a living in multiple ways. In North America, there are vast forests of evergreen trees which produce large nutritious seeds. These seeds are protected in woody cones, which squirrels use a food source, but these cones are a challenge for most birds. The crossbills have an overlapping beak which allows them to pry the scales of the cone apart so that the bird can get to the seed with its tongue.
