[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Common Crossbill (Loxia curvirostra) is a small passerine bird in the finch family Fringillidae. It breeds in the spruce forests of North America, where it is known as Red Crossbill, as well as Europe and Asia; some populations (possibly different species) breed in pine forests in certain areas of all three continents, and in North America, also in Douglas-fir. It nests in conifers, laying 3–5 eggs.

This crossbill is mainly resident, but will regularly irrupt south if its food source fails. This species will form flocks outside the breeding season, often mixed with other crossbills.

Bayağı çaprazgaga (Loxia curvirostra), ispinozgiller (Fringillidae) familyasından ötücü bir kuş türü.

Özellikleri: Bayağı çaprazgaga 15-17 cm uzunluğuna ve 40 gram ağırlığa varır. Gagasının iki ucu bir çapraz oluşturur ve ismide bundan alır. Dişileri gri yeşil, erkekleri ise sarı, kavuniçi ya da kızıl renk olurlar. Bir grubun içinde uçmayı seven bu kuşlar, grup halinde dalgalana dalgalana uçma oyunları yaparak uçarlar. Ötüşü "gib gib" diye tarif edilebilir.

Yaşam alanı: Bayağı çaprazgaga ladin ve göknar ormanlarını tercih eder, ama parklarda ve bahçelerde de görülür. Orta ve Kuzey Avrupa'da,Asya'da ve Kuzey Amerika'da yaygındır. Anadolu'da ise Batı ve Doğu Karadeniz, Uludağ ve Kazdağı bölgesinde bulunur.

Beslenme: Bayağı çaprazgaganın gaga şekli iğne yapraklı ağaçların kozalaklarını kırmak ve içindeki tohumları ayıklamak için çok uygundur
