Chris captured this photo of a Crossbill Finch. These birds are pretty rare to find in the Smokies. We are fortunate to see a dozen or more almost every day. If you keep a bird list and wish to cross them off, Mt. LeConte would be the place to do that. Today is looking like a beautiful day for a hike. I suspect we will be pretty busy with the long weekend. I hope everyone enjoys their time outdoors. Come see us up top.
