Parrot crossbill -mint

Parrot crossbill (Loxia pytyopsittacus) is endemic to Åland and Scandinavia. Crossbills are characterized by the crossed tip of the beak. The parrot crossbill’s beak is both wider and longer than that of other crossbills. The bird mainly eats pine seeds, and the beak is adapted to snap up the pineal scales.

The crossbill has a large head, long wings, and a forked tail. The female is greyish green or greyish brown while the male plumage varies from brick red to magnificent red.
