About Parrot Crossbill

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.
